Learning to Slap – Progress report, Update 3

Thought I’d give a quick update to where I am at with learning how to play slap bass. I’m still not happy with my slap proficiency and am nowhere near getting through Lesson 9 yet.  In my frustration I searched the internet for any and all kinds trainings, exercises and videos on how to play slap.  After looking at a few websites and watching many YouTube Videos I decided to pick up a copy of Ed Friedland’s Slap Bass: The Ultimate Guide.  I’ve started going through this DVD and am very pleased with my results.  This in no way means that I am not happy with the Teach Me Bass Guitar Course, it’s just that I felt like I was stuck in a rut and need to get a second opinion, so to speak.

I will be posting a full review of Slap Bass: The Ultimate Guide soon, for now I thought I would share some of the great slap bass websites I encounter in my search for slap bass knowledge.
