So most of the stuff I play doesn’t require a whole lot of slapping speed (basic rockabilly, country, swing, etc.). However, I sort of feel like it’s something I need to work on just to have it in the tank. Plus I think it would help with endurance on longer gigs. I’ve never really had the desire to play super fast before, but today I decided to tackle a Reverend Horton Heat song and it totally whooped my butt. The album version was just ridiculous speed-wise, so I found a live version that the tempo was only slightly more manageable. The song is called Living on the Edge of Houston and here was my best attempt at the live version after about 90 minutes of trying to sort it all out. What other fast slapping type songs might you recommend for building up some real speed?
