  2. I'm in the middle of doing a slap bass series of lessons (with videos and audio tracks). Unfortunately It's not ready yet but the idea behind the series is to teach you all the basics, building up to the insane technique of Primus, Wooten, Marcus Miller and other such slap players. If you're interested, drop me a message (as I aim to have the series up and running soon).

    i learned basics of slapping through youtube, two of the best channels i found was Marlowedk and devinebass, also i listened to alot of songs with slap bass and tried to copy the styles of several bass players to combine it to my own. good luck with the slapping! :)
  4. Great bass players and youtube channels. You can learn alot from watching both of those guys.
