Stuart Hamm – Slap, Pop & Tap For The Bass
Sep 06 2016
Stuart Hamm – one of the most famous American bassist, teacher Bass Institute of Technology in Los Angeles. Hamm worked with Steve Vai, David David, and Joe Satriani. In this video, he will display samples of high technology “slap”, “tapping” and more.
You’ll get into left-hand stretch exercises, major and minor arpeggios, playing chords, slapping and popping, funk, hammer-on slaps, triplets, right-hand Flamenco strums, two-handed polyphonic tapping, contrapuntal playing, percussive tapping, playing a melody with the right hand while the left plays a bass pattern, classical techniques and styles, the Bach Prelude in G.
Stuart was the really first guy to popularise finger tapping, slapping, popping, flamenco rasque’s, and general ‘off-the-map’ playing in that late 80’s 90’s period. As such this is a time capsule of what was leading edge at that time – and has not often been advanced since. 99% of bass players can’t do this stuff and there’s a whole load of material here to extend what you can do with the bass in a band support role and in soloing. For the cost of one lesson these have a huge amount of content.
