    Hey fellow Dutchman,
    Try www.bassmatters.nl and see if it's on the site. Otherwise, call Paul at the number listed in the site. "Paul's Bassmatters" is a great little specialized bass-only store in Nijmegen.
    BTW, I had been trying to learn how to slap using several books, but it really took off when I started with Alex's tape. He is a real teacher and not a celebrity trying to teach. Definitely worth the money!!!
     
  6. ehm..I have once seen a short part of a slap-program..don't know from who'm that was, becaus I didnt play bass, so wasn't focussed on names...

    does Alexis have a "pentagram" on his shoulder-strap ?? (I rember that from the video I saw..)

    I never noticed his strap really, but I'm going to look for that pentagram next time.

    What did stick in my mind is he is playing a Spector in the video. It's a neck through, natural dark wood finish, and P+J pickups. I'm guessing it was an older US model?
     
  8. does he also give some advise about muting the 5th string ??

    He gives some advice about muting generally, but the video is all 4-string.
