Chapter 8: Intro to Slapping
In this final chapter, Matt offers a fun, challenging mini crach-course on slap-bass technique and its vocabulary in the language of funk. He begins by showing you the mechanics of slapping and popping, starting out with basic quarter-note and eighth-note rhythms and gradually “turns up the heat” by introducing 16th-note rhythms, while showing you effective ways to add hammer-ons to popped notes, which make it easier to incorporate 16th notes into a line without having to work too hard with the pick hand. He then adds fret-hand-muted dead notes, finger slides and vibratos to create exciting, super-funky bass lines.
