Watch the Full Hand Frail online guitar lesson by Matthieu Brandt from Slap, Frail, & Thump
Thump The Chump
Another powerful accompaniment we can play by combining a slap with a frail is called a 'Full Hand Frail'. Instead of using just one finger to make the frailing motion, we can use three fingers at the same time and make a thumping sound with the palm of the right hand. This sounds more difficult than it is. In a way this comes closest to playing the type of rhythms you would play with a pick. The song we'll work on is 'Thump the Chump'. We're capoed on the 2nd fret and we're in the key of A, relative to the capo.
