  1. Whats a video available in the UK that can teach the basics of slap bass. Ive been playing for about 1 3/4 years and haven't ever tried slap before. Ive heard its best to buy a decent video.

    The general consensus around here is that The Slap Bass Program with Alexis Sklarevski, is the best video for slap hands down. You can get the info here:

    That is the best slap video on the market, and IMHO the best bass instructional video ever made. I wish that all videos were as clear and concise as that one. Very easy to follow, and great instructional value.
  5. Does anyone know where to get that video in the Toronto Area?

    That video is the best $50 you can spend on anything bass. Problem is, the recording is kinda bad, and the first copy i got had a buzzing noise in the background. I exchanged it with amazon and it was much better. I'm stating this just in case you end up with the one i returned.

    BTW, i've been trying to get a good opinion on a more general bass technique video. Fretting hand technique, mostly. Does anybody know of one?
