Everything is covered here -- starting with all the basics like octaves, hammer-ons and pull-offs. It then builds into the most advanced slap techniques including double and triple pops, flamenco thumb technique, and plucks. There are lessons in upright bass slap, as well as modal harmony studies. The grooves cover a wide range of styles that include jazz fusion, walking lines, fingerstyle conversion, pop/dance, funk/soul, bluegrass, Dixieland, etc. These lessons have something for almost any student; written in bass clef and tablature with CD.
