Hi there!

Slap Bassics lesson 11 teaches you a really cool new slap bass pattern/line, this time in a fretted position.

The line is taken from one of own compositions entitled 'Snake' and has a really smooth, rolling feel to it once you get it flowing. As usual, take your time and build up speed very gradually and most of all - have fun!

If you enjoy this free slap bass lesson then please share it and help spread the word! You'll be a real part of helping this free online resource grow.
