Pete Turland – Rockabilly Slap Bass
Mar 11 2015
Pete covers different slap techniques, double and triple slap, bass setup, strings, pickups and a short history of rockabilly bass. The sections are brief. He can play triplets very fast and precisely. Even in slow-motion, I couldn’t see exactly how he does it. He demonstrates a couple of Willie Dixon pieces, and to do one, he has this technique where he slaps the strings with the outside of his thumb to get the triplet.
Pete describes how to slap the bass in different styles slow to fast slapping. He shows ist right away on his bass, he gives also advices for strings and gap between strings and fingerboard. You should know about music theorie, the harmonics and double bass technik, then it’s a great pleasure to watch Pete slap practices.
