Watch the Play-along #7 online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Stu Hamm U: Slap Bass

Time to add some triplet figures to the octave, thumb and finger slapping and popping patterns. We will be alternating between straight eighth note patterns and triplets to let you get comfortable with the sound and timing of going back and forth between the two patterns.

The example sounds surprisingly similar to one of the very first songs that I learned to play on the bass when I was a wee lad. Can you name that tune?
