Slap Bass 101: Part 2 Hammer Ons and Ghost Notes

Slap Bass Lessons Part 2

Welcome to Slap Bass 101: Part 2.

If you’ve missed part one then click here. Hammer ons and ghosts notes will bring a whole new world to your funk playing. There exercises can be a stretch, literally. Just put in the time and you’ll see progress, instead of watching Jersey Shore. (Oh gawd, Mike and Snooki are so annoying.)

Disclaimer: Many times as egotistical musicians we like to jump ahead and usually we end up getting frustrated and don’t understand the lesson, so we end up quitting. If you’re a beginner and that’s you, then you need to pick up your big boy pants and click on the link below and start from the top…Please. =)
