L365 Tap, Slap & Pluck – Slap bass in A

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites YouTube Preview Image

This A minor groove uses the “left hand tap” originally one of Abe Laboriel’s many slap techniques but widely popularized by  Victor Wooten ,it requires some left hand strength (or low action).
The main figure is Tap, Thumb, Pluck – Tap, Thumb, Pluck…
Otherwise there is good use of the open strings, i love the crispness of the open G and D string
Remember to let the notes ring where indicated in the transcription(end of bar 2 and bar 4)
