  • Hello GMC!

    -In this lesson you are going to practice slap bass style of playing. This lesson will exclusively concentrate to left hand slap technique development. Doing these exercises regularly will allow you to execute left hand slaps accurately and with control. Left hand slapping technique is integral part of any slap bass line and learning to play that way will enable you to improvise your own slap lines well.

    -This lesson includes:

    * number of exercises aimed for development of left hand slap technique

    * prepared loop able guitar pro file for practicing and playing along as well as audio backing tracks with a real drums groove in various tempos for more fun while practicing

    -Time signature: 4/4

    -Difficulty: for all levels of playing

    -Tuning: standard EADG

    Equipment I used for getting this sound was: Peavey Cirrus bass with active pickups, equal mix of both of them with added bass and treble on on board 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 the forum.

    Enjoy and have a lot of fun enhancing your thumpin' skills!
