writing slap bass lines


Shaggy8900

Recommended Posts

a lot of my slap bass lines sound the same, and consist of the same notes. they usually consist of 0s 3s and 5s, but not always. i also have trouble incorporating mutes in my slap lines, although ive figures out pretty cool slap stuff like double pops, i dont really know how to USE them. ANY help would be appreciated

Help, they've invented three new notes! ;)

 

Try listening to the song that you want to play the slap line on, and humming the line you want to play. Only once you've established the groove and notes in your head try to work out how to play it. Music comes from the heart and mind, not what patterns your fingers are used to moving in.
