Expanding the Slap Bass Vocabulary with Ray Riendeau – Groove #7…

Greetings all!

This months’ groove is based on G Minor. This one has three bars of “traditional” bass slapping with the fourth bar utilizing the right hand Rake down/Rake up technique I’ve used in previous grooves. The last bar also uses muted percussive notes.

Slap on!
