Alternative doublethumb

Here i am using a alternative technique for doublethumb lines. In principle ist the same purpose: to slap sixteenth notes on one string. The only difference is, that you play the  upcoming movement of you hand with your index finger and not again with the thumb. For additional pops you use the middle finger.

For my taste the sound of the upcoming index finger notes is more satisfying than playing all notes with the thumb. Check it out and let me know your opinion.

At the end of the video you will see that the king of pop still lives on in the heart of so many children….

I feel the same as the other players comments.This style of doublethumb has been my style for many years and comes out naturaly,i just didn’t know it had a name or that i was even doing it.The “Wooten”style is soooo frustrating to master all i get is these muted triplet sounds and not much melody.

Reminds me of an “Alien Ant Farm” video. Great sound!

Great video. I rarely ever use the “conventional” double thump, nearly always use this technique. With my slap style I tend to bounce off the string rather than slap through so this suits my style.

Great performance Gigu! And a great “new” way of doublethumbin’. I really like the end of the video! Is that your son? Give him a lot of credit, great dance ;-)

Hi – I like it – I find it easier to mute with my right hand palm than using a double thumb technique.

This type of technique is a variant of “Figueta”. In Renaissance music is a technique that is a principal in the lute and the vihuela. It’s a good idea not to press too much the thumb, plus get a different sound.
