We're happy to announce the 25th Anniversary Edition of Slap It! When it was first released, Slap It! Funk Studies for the Electric Bass was the first book to be published on slap bass technique. Now almost 25 years later, Slap It! has become one of the standard books for electric bass players wanting to learn more about playing and sight-reading slap bass lines. Acclaimed as the most comprehensive study on slap bass technique, Slap It! contains 151 slap bass exercises in both standard and TAB notation, and 98 recorded slap bass examples on the included audio CD (that's 28 more slap bass tracks than any prior edition!). Also available: CD only (PR.41441138D).
