Slap Bass 101: Part 2 – Building on the Basics

Last time, we covered the basics in my introduction to slap bass lesson.

This week, we’re going to build on the concepts of the introduction, covering basic thumb slapping, ghosted notes, muting and offbeat bass lines.

Next: Part 3 – left hand slap and hammer-ons.

Thomas Risell, otherwise known as “MarloweDK”, is a bassist and music educator from Denmark. For more great bass lessons from MarloweDK, visit PlayBassNow.com.
