I unearthed a video of him doing a clinic! Now I ask you guys if you can help me dissect it! I've been going for hours and have made no progress. At all. Maybe we can get someone translate this and help us! CLINICA DE BAJO GUSTAVO DAL FARRA EN AMPM - 2011 - YouTube What I'm having a big issue with is the little part at about 1:06. I think he's playing a low E, then slapping some how, and then popping the high G. Also what he plays after that is beyond what I can track. Can someone really dissect this, so we can learn how to play it! He is basically building up his technique to his famous youtube hit "rushed love" I'm sure some of you slap bassists have similar ways of coming about making this sound, so that would also be helpful!! Edit: I just discussed it with a friend. We are debating if the first note is an e that is the open bottom slapped, or the octave up popped. If either of those, how does he do it with the flamenco? How does he get that noise at all?
