Awesome slap exercises, great job Bogdan:)!
Thanks for feedback !!!
Awesome. This is way to hard for my taste xD
This is a very useful lesson - getting a good tone and being rhythmically consistent are the two most important things in slap and this should really help people do that. Great job Bogdan!
Thanks a lot Buddha!
You are spot on, sound and rhythm are most important in slap style (and in others as well).
-In todays lesson we are going to work on our slap bass technique. As with previous lessons in this series, this one uses the same groove but makes it more complex and challenging. Hammer-ons will be our focus here but this time we are going to play 16th notes utilizing ghost notes. This "pattern" will allow you to play challenging and interesting fast slap bass lines.
-Backing is funky, from techniques you are going to play hammer-ons, thumping dead notes and plucking dead (or ghost) notes. This lesson will show you a slap bass technique which you can instantly adapt to your own slap lines composing. 16th notes will give you a nice "going in circles" slap bass feel to the line.
-This lesson is in the key of Em. I used the E minor pentatonic scale exclusively in constructing this groove.
-Tempo: 120 bpm
-Time signature: 4/4
Equipment I used for getting this sound was: Peavey Cirrus bass with active soapbar pickups, equal mix of both of them with added treble and middle on onboard eq - then going to the nemesis (eden) amp with a 1x15" and slightly added bass and treble there (at 1 o'clock position). Feel free to ask me any questions in the lesson feedback and in my instructor board at forum.
Enjoy and I hope you'll have a lot of fun slapping in this one!
