Slap and Pop Evolved! (Premium)

Post  Admin on Sun Nov 22, 2009 1:13 pm

The Evolution of our free YouTube riffs!

These exercises have been created by me, and have been tried and tested with all my students. A lot of those guys (and Gals!) are now out gigging, and are at a very good standard...

In this lesson are eight exercises to get you slapping and popping like the pro's! They come as one video file that is about fifty-five minutes long. This package also comes with seven drum tracks that progress in speed.

Here is a brief summary of what we cover:

Exercise one:

Similar to our youtube video, but with a lot more groove, and a little harder. We start with a double slap, and incorperate pops, hammer-ons and mutes later. Also advice on the psychology of practice, featured here.

Exercise two:

An exercise designed to gain finger strength. More slaps and pops but also double popping as well as barring (or bridging) with the fretting hand. More advice on muting and the economy of motion, here.

Exercise three:

A cool line with a nice use of slides. A funky one, which is one of my personal favourites. Has a primus-like feel to it.

Exercise four:

A great exercise that can be changed to the users personal preference. Again, this exercise was created to build strength, but it's main purpose is to build up speed and efficency!

Exercise five:

An exercise and discussion on the role of the Bass player, and how slap and pop fits into that role. Also, an exercise with a pocket played slap and pop groove, and how it applies to the role.

Exercise six:

Another groove based exercise that we move around onto different frets.

Exercise seven:

A percussive exercise that will speed up your slap and popping! A cool little exercise that also covers timing.

Exercise eight:

Another percussive lesson/exercise.

Here is the link!

I plan on getting all the premium lessons. I've just gotten the Orion solo lesson down, so actually I think Cool Chords should be next on my list. But I also want to learn slap and pop properly... but I don't want to rush things...

Goddamnit why is bass so awesome?

I'd buy it, but I'm cash strapped for now!

And the reason to start playing bass? Chicks dig it.



Or so I was told, when I started all them years ago....

Chicks dig steel drums/steel pans too, apparently. We had a nice little mostly female gathering when we were doing Stand By Me Smile

Well.

Chicks dont dance to guitar solo's.

Im yet to find the bass to attract any ladies. So far I got a few "Whats wrong with your guitar" and a "I thought bass was just a downtuned guitar!"

Oh, the joys of our hobby Sad

But hey, at least we have added comfort! Very Happy

Will buy Slap and Pop evolved in a few days =]

I can now do exercise 1 perfectly at a slooooow sloooow tempo. Well, I think I can, I'm having a problem with muting the first two notes... They do mute, but something still hangs around afterward for a bit, I can only describe it as a low harmonic. It doesn't happen on the mute after the slide on the D. Is it because the A note was sounding before the mute and perhaps the resonant frequency of my bass is an A?

Just want to make sure I'm not doing it wrong Smile

Edit: I think I'm right... I tried doing the riff starting on the G and it sounds a lot cleaner.
