Slaps Bass For Beginners
Bass Lessons

Heres something I wrote to help everyone who has never played 
slaps bass
or is having trouble playing slaps bass. I did NOT copy this out
of a book. Although I set it up like a book. If you still cant play 
something right ask me. Tell me what you think and if it helps 
or not.
It sounds better if you play the first bar twice then play the second
bar twice.

Slaps bass is using your right thumb (if left handed then left) to 
'slap' the strings. To slap use your right thumb to hit the string. 
Try and do
 this close to the fretboard. Twist your wrist and release the 
thumb after contact with
the string. This is one of the methods used to play slap bass. 
Do not hit
the string with force, it will only make background noises and wont
have a clear sound. Make sure that your slapping is accurate 
and firm.
Slapping is represented with an 'S' or a 'T'

Ghost notes or dampened notes are notes that have no distinguishable
