A really great sounding lick (like always)!! I defy anyone to listen to this and not “move”. All of these techniques are new to me so I really appreciate your detailed verbal description, slow demonstration and accurate transcription in standard notation. Cheers, F. Clef

THANK YOU!!!! What a GREAT job of taking us through this wonderful groove step by step. I’ve learned sooooo much, and can do what you show us when you break it down like this.

Have a great day,

Hey Marlowe, great stuff as always, really keeps me motivated and enthusiastic on the bass. What settings do you use to get your slap sound?
The settings from my Korg px4d is listed onthis page
