Excerpt from the latest release from author Brian Emmel, "Slaplicious Bass Licks In 31 Flavors."
Geared toward the intermediate to advanced player, the grooves on this fun DVD range from basic to very complex, but Brian Emmel breaks each groove down into bite-sized pieces so even beginners could enjoy this DVD! The main focus of these slap bass licks is to stay away from status quo disco lines. Brian demonstrates various right-hand techniques along with modal and interval concepts. After each demonstration and lick break down, he provides a musical incorporation on top of each bass lick to show how one lick can sound awesome over multiple chord exchanges! 60 minutes. Includes tab .pdf.
A quick tutorial on the fastest method to learn notes on the bass guitar!
This was designed for the ADD, ADHD, and "get rich quick." types of learners.
Slaplicious Bass Licks In 31 Flavors
This New Release available by Hal Leonard Publishing.

Fun & Funny! :)

I look forward to my guitar lesson every Saturday!
Brian teaches me the guitar parts and they sound just like the recording!! He always makes me "prove it," that I know what and how I'm supposed to play.
