Ok… we ALL like slap bass right?… I’m sure when you first heard your first slap bass riff you thought it was the coolest thing you’d ever heard! Well… me too! But – one thing that so many players suffer from is only being able to play slap riffs in the key of E. This happens because we rely way too much on the open E string and tend to get panicked if we have to slap in a different key.
Well in this bass lesson I’m going to show you how to break that mould! With a little hard work you’re going to be able to slap in any key!
Now grab you’re bass and get in the shed!
