Expanding the Slap Bass Vocabulary with Ray Riendeau – Groove #6

ray-riendeau-oct2015-2Expanding the Slap Bass Vocabulary with Ray Riendeau – Groove #6…

Hello fellow bassists!

Happy New Year to you all!

This month I’d like to share another groove that uses the Rake down/ Rake up technique that has become a favorite of mine. It also uses the left hand hammer-on to attack the fretted notes. The groove is based on an A Dominant chord.
