Slap Happy: Part 2

Let’s continue with our journey into the slap realm.  If you haven’t seen Part 1 of this series, you can find it here.

Here is another video from Scott Devine of Scott’s Bass Lessons.  I highly recommend checking out his website.  In this video he demonstrates how to play the slap style in different positions.  Everyone slaps in the key of E because it’s easy to slap the open strings, but you need to be able to play this style in different keys.  Scott gives a great tutorial on how to play the slap style in closed positions.  Outstanding video.
