Rock N Roll music has influenced much of today's popular music. Many current bands in any number of styles have roots in Rock N Roll or some style of music that was influenced by Rock N Roll. Many current bass techniques have been influenced by Rock N Roll as well. Even slap bass has many of it's roots in Rock N Roll (originally slapped on upright bass).

Rock N Roll bass lines are an excellent thing for students to study. It is also a fairly easy way to get quality results quickly on bass. Some of this book's examples will be simple for starting students. This is due to Rock N Roll's rhythmic simplicity. Quarter and eighth note grooves are a great way to get your right and left hands working in sync. As the book progresses so does the level of difficulty.

Some examples in this book include two different tab options. These examples demonstrate different fingering possibilities. It can be very beneficial to a student to explore different fingering options. This can create versatility and help the student learn the fingerboard better.

50 MODAL SLAP BASS WORKOUTS
This 5 1/2" by 8" QWIKGUIDE was created for the bassist who has mastered the basics of slap bass and wants to expand his or her skills. Many of this book's examples were written to fine tune individual string control -- the ability to thumb or pop on any string at any time. Individual string control is one of the most common weaknesses with slap bass students. Some of this book's examples are common fingerstyle workouts that are arranged for slapping. Developing the ability to slap finger style bass lines gives the bassist an amazing skill. This book covers some very advanced slap techniques, including triple pops and the flamenco thumb technique. Written in tablature only for the four-string bass. Includes audio CD. 48 pages. Our Price: US$7.95
