SLAP COURSE – Part 7 – Super fast slap bass technique (16th note triplets)
#BASSNATION in this intermediate to advanced slap bass lesson I dig into a technique that will really help you show some flash in your bass playing! This will be one you will really need to dig in with me, slow down and play at your own pace. If you are just getting into slap bass it takes time to build the muscle memory to execute this lick with precision. So MAKE SURE to take it slow, at your own pace and build up tempo as you get more comfortable with it.

Sweet Lesson, thanks for sharing. Nice to see your 5-string, I’m trying to learn using mine. How can you prevent the overtones going so fast?
Hey thanks David! It definitely take some time to train my hands and I still struggle with it sometimes. And believe it or not sometimes it has to do with your EQ settings. Like whem the trouble is too high it might create some overtones. But the secret is in the picking handing when preventing over tones. I will do a short explanation/ demonstration of that soon. Good question
What is yiu eq here? Thanx dude

Thanks 🙂 you rock
With the 32th note pattern, do You hold the 2nd note (D index finger) while plating the rest of the pattern? Or do You mute it with You lefthand?
Hey, great question! I actually made a mistake in this video rhythmically with the terminology. In the section you’re referring to I actually play 16th note triplets and not 32nd note. My apologies. But to answer your question, my left hand is slightly muffling that string but not that much and my picking hand isn’t muting anything for this technique. I mention in the lesson that this technique is played at a speed to where those notes aren’t allowed to ring. When you’re playing this slow you tend to hear the open strings that are played before the hammer ons. But that’s totally fine
