Rudiments For Slap Bass

Rudiments For Slap Bass – Lessons For Bass Guitar Series…

In this Rudiments For Slap Bass lesson, I want to show you how I developed my slap technique on the bass by applying the rudiments. The idea of ??all this is to prepare our thumb to correctly play any rhythmic figure.

The exercises that I will be presenting below are based on the A Major scale. The idea is that you practice them with all scales, modes and including arpeggios, from triads, 7th chords, etc. So let’s start with the exercises. 

Example 1 – Quarter notes up and down the scale.
