Slap, Tap & Stuff: The Dark Slide Video Thread !

Recommended Posts

Well, there's the obvious, so I'll start there...

Hopefully this will be in the range of what you're looking to hear....

 

1) Thumb strike/slap

 

2) Finger(s) pop

 

3) Hammer-on's from left hand?

 

This should give you an idea of just exactly how much slapping knowlege I DON'T have!

 

LOLOLOL!!!

 

Looking forward to hearing the actual correct answers, of course!

That is what I was looking for, and the first 2 are correct, but in my opinion, the 3rd is incorrect.

3 basic?

1)Slap, doublethumb, etc.

 

2) Pop, chord popping, double stop

 

3) all i can think of for this is Palm mute for the ultra high frequency or strum for chordial work.

 

Is i close?

Muting. Yeah. Muting, ghost notes and that sort of thing.

 

I don't think some people realize exactly how important that is, and it's actually a huge part of it.

 

If someone asked me to play a slap line, I couldn't do it. Even the song at the start of the video I posted is full of muted notes.

Cool, sometimes called dead notes or a precussive attack, i sometimes use either hand for them, pat the strings with the left for a deeper bumph rather than a clickish bumph.

With a palm mute pop you can get that high freq. squeal like a g**tar.

Wouldn't be stepping on toes as long as you stay away from the slapping he is doing.

 

I say go for it.

Cool video. Well Done. Thanks.

 

Never seen the strumming or thumb popping thing before. That is totally cool.

 

Thanks for the inspiration to learn something new!

Funny thing is, in the past week, when I've put my mind to it just a teensy little bit more, I have all of a sudden without even trying acheived quite a bit of progress with slap. I can't slap anything really complicated. I can incorporate a bit more slap into my fingerstyle bass lines when I feel like it. I'm more comfortable overall. I'm not properly versatile with slap, but I can feel progress.

 

And I think it was all down to a subtle "get ur arse into gear slapping hands" from my brain after reading this thread! Thanks! :thu::)

 

I'm not even going to try any of the amazing suff at the moment... just giving it some time first. :wave:

Reading it the first time, i thought maybe you took it wrong Denson.

Reading it the second time, i thought maybe you're right.

Reading it a third time...i don't know what the hell it means :confused:
