“Pickup slap” exercise in D7
It can really help your “groove” to fill in some percussive rhythm in your basslines, especially when playin unaccompagnied – ie starting a song/groove with bass alone
Basically you’re emulating the snare drum on 2 and 4 by slappin the string/strings over the pickup
Im exaggerating a bit in the slow sections, overemphasizing the slaps.
