Slap and pop the bass
Building on last lesson, let's continue with slapping and popping. This is a style that goes all the way back to the 60s and Larry Graham, who originated it. This style is played to this day by bassists like Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller, and Victor Wooten. It's a lot of fun and can really add an intersting sound and feel to your lines. To prepare for this chapter, review the 4x4 exercises from Lesson 1.
