Alternately called slap bass, funk bass, or thumb and snap bass, this technique will be approached in class on a beginner's basis. Emphasis will be placed on fundamentals. Developing a technical foundation through progressive exercises, students will learn to read and interpret basic slap notation. Creativity is encouraged through use of combining basic slap ideas (thumb, snap, muted notes, slides, hammer-ons, and pull-offs).
