Yes! Please, just start another thread already!

Since you first asked you have gotten SIX responses saying "Yes Bassius, start another thread"!

Whenever I get a notification that this thread has been updated I am hoping to see another video or something useful, but it's just you talking to yourself. :rolleyes:

So go make a thread and post your videos already!

Sorry, I started school and I am trying to get into the swing of things. I should have time this weekend I think. I'll get some stuff up.

I am going to cover slapping, popping, muting or ghost notes... probably a little bit in popping with more than one finger and it's applications. I'll also do some basic exercises and how to apply them into music.

That is the plan. Sorry for the wait.

Just one suggestion: It'd be nice if you edited the original post to include links to video(s). I'm lazy and don't want to have to go through the entire thread to find the video(s).

Just dl'ded the first vid. We have very similar slap/strum techniques (for when I need it) as I learned most of all that stuff on my own from watching Primus vids.

This is a good thread. I'll be working on that triplet stuff. Always wondered how Dickens did that.

Hey there,

I am using some super cheap strings. I forget what they are. I got 5 sets of 5 strings for like $30. I use whatever is cheapest when I go to buy em.

I had no EQ. I was running straight into my computer.

There are a lot of tricks in it and it isn't extremelly complicated, even in the tapping part.

The basic move is left pointer 3rd fret E string with 1st joint on 2nd fret G string.
Left middle finger fingering on 5th fret E string.
He slaps with his thumb and pops G string with his middle finger it seems.
In the end he slaps E and pops A.

great video Dark Slide.

when you find the time to do more, please remember to go slowly, so the new concepts are understood before you execute at your blazing speed.

i can't tell you how worthwhile this is.

thanks!

Thanks JA! I would love to see moves like this broken down for us slow learners; I checked the DS video thread and didnt see anything like this. Are there any instructional vids. that cover this sort of thing?

not too complicated. At least I don't think so. The framerate makes it hard to tell, he may be doing some double thumb stuff, but if he is, it's just for flash, because it isn't needed.

I actualy have time today, and I will make a quick video of this, and then move onto the next video in my bunch.

There you go. That should be pretty close.

I THINK the reason it's hard to tell what he is doing is because he is popping with his middle finger and not his index. Watch him closely.

Edit: I will make another quick video because it's possible that he is double thumbing the thumb part. So I can show you that.
