Expanding the Slap Bass Vocabulary with Ray Riendeau – Groove #10

Ray Riendeau - Bio PicExpanding the Slap Bass Vocabulary with Ray Riendeau – Groove #10…

Greetings all!

This months’ groove has a James Brown feel/vibe to it, but with slap. It’s a bit more involved rhythmically than previous grooves so be sure to take it slow at first.

As far as techniques, it uses Left hand hammering for some notes, a few popped notes ( I use first finger) and also some more of the Rake Up/Rake Down stuff we’ve covered before.

Slap On!
