artist: bass lessons
title: octave slap/pop exercise
tabbed by: juleon

this is a great funky exercise that my bass teacher guy taught me which can
greatly increase your slapping and popping abilityif done correctly.
The following may seem fairly simple, but remeber that this is used to make
your slap and pop sound become more strong.
Also after popping a string try using your hand to dampen the note (this makes
the note sound more clear)

legend—
—s=slap
—p=pop

here it is*************************************************************************

G——————————————————————|
D——7——7——7——7——7——7——7—|
A——————————————————————|
E—5——5——5——5——5——5——5——|
sp sp sp sp sp sp sp

seems fairly simple, remeber only move on once you have made this sound as
clear and perfect as possible and dampen the popped string.

G——7—————————7————|
D———————7————————7| {X2}
A—5—————————5—————|
E——————5————————5—|
sp sp sp sp


once you've got that down move on


G——7————7——7——7|——7———————————9
