Andrew Freed: The Complete History Of Slap Bass

Andrew Freed of Bass Freedom has put together a comprehensive video on the history of slap bass.

“The history of slapping a bass goes back further than you may know,” Andrew shared. “It dates all the way back to the 1920’s on the acoustic bass, before the electric bass was even invented. I’ll show you every bass pioneer that contributed to slap through the decades…ranging from legends Larry Graham, Marcus Miller, Flea, Victor Wooten, Les Claypool, all the way to current bassists who are tearing it up on the internet and social media. Tons more! This is the most detailed, and lengthy video I’ve ever done.”
