Must have (3/17/2010)
I keep coming back to this book & learn something new every time. I have NOT seen a better book for solid slap basics.

Young - Seattle, WA
Great Book (4/26/2007)
I remember getting this book back in the 80s (vinyl record included). I lost it and then borrowed my teacher's copy so I could copy the whole thing, which I had bound. I'm not sure what happened to that copy, but I played the hell out of it. I bought another copy, which has also been lost, and here I am contemplating buying it yet again. That should tell you something. I would recommend this book along with Jon Liebman's book Funk Bass because the latter does a better job getting into all 12 keys. I can't count the number of times I have ripped off the lines in Slap It! Don't forget your metronome.

Don't waste another moment (1/18/2005)
unlike many slap books which incorporate the same style of slap, most of them being very one dimensional. This one breaks it down. I noticed the difference immediately. from begining to end this book starts you on path to slap greatness.

Slap It... the standard! (4/26/2004)
This book is a classic that will keep you busy for a long time...years! I bought this when I was first starting bass years ago and still use it today!

Jim - USA
Definitely a must for every slap enthusiast (3/24/2004)
what I like:
+ after working your way through this book, you got it down!
+ very high level of the licks
+ incredible good playing on the CD

what I don't like:
- not all licks are on the CD
- there are no CD track numbers in the book
- the licks aren't in many different keys, mostly E or G
