About the Guitar Lesson Plan
Interactive Video Bass Guitar Instruction
"In this Slap Bass course, I will be teaching you the techniques and stylistic approaches that you'll need to have a solid grip on to build and ultimately master your slap and pop musical vocabulary. There are as many ways to "slap that bass" as there are bass players, but in this module, I have assembled all of the techniques that I have found to be the most useful and effective. Have fun with this!"
