It Got Me Goin'

Comments about Hal Leonard Slap Bass The Ultimate Guide (DVD):

I love this DVD/Chart Booklet. Ed Friedland is excellent. I bought a couple of books with CDs, but this method got me goin'. I'm sure after finishing Ed's method I will be able to go back to the other methods and get something out of them too. The hardest thing is gettin' the initial thump with the thumb. Mr. Friedland got me goin' on that technique. Friedland is also funny in a dry jazz musician way!

dont look any farther

By Trevor Searle

from Austin

Comments about Hal Leonard Slap Bass The Ultimate Guide (DVD):

This is an amazing product that can teach you to play slap no matter how good you are. There is a video that teaches the slap, pop, tap, and more. Then it tells you how to put it together. There are cool little riffs you play along with him at the end of each lesson. There is tab and the notes written out for you to read when playing.

Great slap lessons

By Paul26

from MIAMI, FL

Comments about Hal Leonard Slap Bass The Ultimate Guide (DVD):

I play several styles, but slap bass was not my best. Did some research and I picked this one; great choice. Well organized, progressive challenge, with good views of both hands, and normal and slow play of each groove.

Now THIS is instructional!

By Abraham

from Colorado Springs, CO

Comments about Hal Leonard Slap Bass The Ultimate Guide (DVD):

Within a month of practicing all the exercises that were presented by Ed Friedland in this slap bass instructional DVD, I could actually get a grasp on the concepts and control on how a bassist should control all the aspects that go into slap playing! I thought it was impossible to learn how to do this, and I finally found a video that has such a layman approach to such a complex technique. A must have for any bassist with a serious attitude to learn this style!

Slap bass instruction

By slapbassking

from Akron, Ohio

Comments about Hal Leonard Slap Bass The Ultimate Guide (DVD):

"Slap Bass The Ultimate Guide" is just that, the ultimate. Ed Friedland goes over the basics then demonstrates all of the examples slow then fast. This DVD has really opened up my funk lines.

This is a great educational DVD.

Comments about Hal Leonard Slap Bass The Ultimate Guide (DVD):

If you ever wanted to tackle the slap funk style of bass playing I would highly recommend this DVD. The production of this DVD is very high quality. Offering multiple camera angles in order to reveal all the movements involved with producing the many different sounds. The teaching begins with not only the correct posture and position to strike and pop, but also explains how to properly ?shape? your sound. Then the Instruction continues, revealing all the techniques use in the Slap funk style. (Hammers, pull-off, muting, left hand slap, ETC?)

I Actually Learned Something!

By samikatz

from Southern Cali

Comments about Hal Leonard Slap Bass The Ultimate Guide (DVD):

Usually I never learn anything new on instructional videos, but this actually taught me a lot about Slap Bass playing. Buy it only if you want to learn Slap techniques.
