Mark Sharma is an extended range bassist with over 10 years of playing experience. He attended school pursuing a degree in philosophy, but after working closely with Music Professor, Jacob Alder, at Arizona State University, Mark went on to pursue other facets of bass guitar. Initially playing 4 string bass, Mark now plays 5 string bass, 5 string fretless bass, and even 6 string bass. He listens to a variety of music, from classic rock to jazz fusion. Mark prides himself in identifying systems of harmony on the bass guitar to open it up tonally as a chordal instrument, just like a guitar or piano.
