The Number 1 Slap Bass Mistake… and 2 Exercises to Fix It!

In this lesson we’re going to be focusing on the NUMBER 1 slap bass mistake I see beginner and intermediate bass players making time and time again…

You're going to learn:

  • Exactly what the number 1 slap bass mistake is
  • 2 exercises to help you fix it (for one of them you’re going to be using the back of your bass!)
  • And... how to get the D and G strings to really cut through in the groove - even when you’re slapping them with your thumb… ninja bass trick alert ;)

As always, see you in the shed...

Scott :)
