i'm getting interested in funk. i have always been a modest bass player, i have always played rock'roll. i am 26 years old, i play for ten years but i focused my attention quite exclusively in the rock, punk style. as you can imagine i have a poor technique, i play fingerstyle and picking. i can read music and i trained my ear a lot on recordings. but in the last weeks i getting interested in techniques i have never studied. i'd like a lot to study my instrument and to improve my skills even outside of my band style. so i surfed the web looking for books and lessons. i have not the opportunity to make great and intensive studies with a teacher due to my university and mi work, but i'm really looking for a method that can introduce me to the slap and to the funk playing. i visited your website and took a look to your lessons. i studied your slap lesson and the chordal studies. so i started to be really curious about this approach that's for me is really unusual. i'd like to know if i can order the book, i live in italy. how many pages? is there a cd with the examples played? and i'd like to know if you can suggest me a good method for introducing me to the slap. thanks a lot for the attention!
