"This book is extremely comprehensive. It's an absolute must-have for anyone interested in learning slap bass or improving their technique."
--Rickey Minor (Producer/Bassist)

"Slap It! Will turn your head! The most complete book yet on the art of slap bass playing. Definitely the bible of twang!"
--Clyde Bullard (Mystic Merlin, Capitol Records)

"Excellent! Finally, an easy-to-understand, comprehensive study on the fine art of slap technique. This is a book that NO electric bassist should miss".
--Tim Landers

"I've found this book to be a must for any bass player¦I was able to improve my recording technique of the "funk" styles. The text of this book is very precise in pinpointing various techniques of this style, not to mention the creativity of the bass lines that can give you endless ideas for your own style".
