Top 5 'Must Know' Slap Riffs - HD Bass Lesson - inc. Flea, Mark King, Larry Graham. Hi people! This week I have the next lesson in the Slap Bass series dealing with some very popular slap bass riffs. Much of the previous Slap lessons dealt with the mechanics and technique of playing the style. But that is such a small part of learning to slap. The best progress can be made once you have those basics nailed so you can just dive into learning some tunes. Here I've covered 5 of the most popular bass riffs out there that should be within the reach of anyone with a basic grasp of the playing style.
