Slap Bass 101 – Part 6: Octaves

Continuing our series on slap bass, today we’ll combine several of the elements from the first five lessons in this series, and add “octaves” to the mix.

FYI, in this lesson, I’m paying a Shergold Modulator bass. If anyone know where to get modules for it, please let me know in the comments below.

Check out the entire Slap Bass 101 series:

Part 1: Slap Bass Introduction

Part 2 – Building on the Basics

Part 3 – Left Hand Slap & Hammer-Ons

Part 4 – Right Hand Pluck/Pop

Part 5 – Funk/Rock Scale Basics
