Polish your slap-style bass technique with this indispensable DVD Bass Player magazine called "...the best instructional video around".
Over the years The Slap Bass Program has become the undisputed bible of slap technique. The instructional video has received more critical acclaim than any other program of its kind. The material has been remastered and finally released on DVD with extensive chapter breakdowns and extra features.
Bass Institute of Technology (BIT) instructor Alexis Sklarevski is a phenomenal teacher, and has the rare ability to put all the pieces together in a refreshingly logical, integrated lesson plan. Starting with the fundamentals of slap bass, he elaborates one step at a time to incorporate complex damping and choking, funk patterns and vamps, "machine-gun" triplets, percussive right-hand tapping, flamenco-style strumming, double-stop riffs, scales, phrasing and much more. He is incredibly thorough in his bass lessons, and his demonstrations with a guitarist and drummer show how this dynamic style of playing bass guitar can be applied in almost any musical situation.
The Slap Bass Program is an incredibly complete and effective method ever produced on the slap style of playing the electric bass. Streaming musical notation and tab is featured on the alternate video track. There's also a Notation Book that is printable from the disc. 83 minutes.
