This month will be all about the slap!
Your monthly REC take will be to master this lesson :
All assignments will be revolving around the techniques needed to play that lesson. You should also start working on it right now and hopefully by the end of month you will be able to play it well.
Weekly assignment 1:
Slap bass exercise 1
Lessons to practice:
Slap Bass Exercises 1: http://www.guitarmasterclass.net/misc-less...bass-exercises/
Goal : To master different slap patterns and be able to play them against a drum backing.
Purpose : Practice your slap bass technique and get new slap patterns under your belt.
I want you to learn all the patterns included in the lesson. Practice them slowly with a metronome/drum backing or Guitar Pro file included. It is important to start slowly and gradually increase the tempo. I want you to slap and pluck a little harder (then in previous slap videos you posted). Try to attack strings with more force in order to get proper sound. Slap bass is an aggressive technique, don't worry strings will be able to withstand it. You want to be aware of your dynamic range possible when slapping.
Post updates on your practice daily if possible, describing what have you done. I want you to post the recording audio or preferably video of your performance of the patterns from the lesson played against a drum backing at the tempo you are comfortable with. For that recording I want you to record on a tempo you are comfortable with , if its 50-60 or 80 bpm doesn't matter. Its better to play clean and right then sloppy on a faster tempo. Just notify me which tempo backing track you need for recording and I'll send it to you.
Deadline to complete: 8th of November
Good luck and remember to post your questions and progress!
