SLAP IT!

SLAP IT!
First published in 1981 and written by Tony Oppenheim, Slap It! has become one of the standard books for electric bass players wanting to learn more about playing and sight-reading slap bass lines.

Slap It! has been updated! It still includes the same classic 151 slap bass exercises, but now all examples are provided in both Standard and TAB notation. The latest edition of the Slap It! companion CD now includes an additional 28 audio tracks, now totaling 99 tracks. Additional revisions include example numbers for every example and CD track numbers for all recorded examples (this was a suggestion from one of our BassBooks.com customer reviews). 48 pages.

Here are some comments on Slap It! from some great players and teachers:
Excellent! Finally, an easy-to-understand, comprehensive study on the fine art of slap technique. This is a book that NO electric bassist should miss.
Tim Landers

Slap It! will turn your head! The most complete book yet on the art of slap bass playing. Definitely the bible of twang!
Clyde Bullard (Mystic Merlin, Capital Records)

I've found this book to be a must for any bass player . . . I was able to improve my recording technique of the 'funk' styles. The text of this book is very precise in pinpointing various techniques of this style, not to mention the creativity of the bass lines that can give you endless ideas for your own style.
Ken Smith (N.Y. studio musician;manufacturer of the Smith Electric Bass)

An excellent book for getting this new concept together. It answers the questions that many of my students have been asking.
Rich Appleman (Chairman, Bass Department,Berklee College of Music)

Thank you, Tony! This book is a monster! For you the reader, this book will help you reach a level of finger-popping, toe-tapping dexterity! Good luck!
