Nice lesson, love that lick at the end….time to get to work!!
Thanks man! Easier than you think! Go for it!
Hey Daric – digging the slap series man. Like this one, it seems real reachable for me I think. Can’t wait to get off work and practice. TGIF lol.
Great and clear!
Hi! Do you have like pdf’s available with the exercises/grooves you show? Maybe they’re here, but I’m not looking in the right place 😉
Absolutely if they are available for the lesson they will be found directly above the video in a clickable link
Hey Daric. You are doing some muted slapping in between phrases (kind of a pickup to each phrase). Can you give me advice on how to catch those ghost notes?
Hey Taylor! I think what you’re referring to is the note that I play to keep time. It’s actually a bad habit that I have, at the same time it actually helps me rhythmically. If you notice whenever it happens it’s mostly on the downbeat of “4”. Just hovering over the fretboard with my left hand and thumping any string with my right.( mainly the “e” or the “a” string)
Thanks! Sounds to me like a very musical and rhythmic bad habit. I like how it keeps the time between phrases and continues the groove. I just started your program a couple days ago and I’m really appreciating the lessons.
Awesome to have you! I see your point, it has its pros and cons. While practicing it’s a great tool, but while recording it’s not lol. Glad to see you’re benefiting from the program
