This is part two of the Victor Wooten Slap Style Lesson. The first
bit was to learn how to play fast without the need for a pick. There
are also a couple of other things you should know to really grasp
the concept of this really useful technique.

First you want to apply the Thumb up and Thumb down technique
into going up scales so your left hand can get used to the technique
like such

G—————————————————————————————————————————4———4———6———6———7———7———|
D—————————————————4———4———5———5———7———7———————————————————————————|
A—5———5———7———7———————————————————————————————————————————————————|
E—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|
1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a
Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu

Then work your way back down like such

G—7———7———6———6———4———4———————————————————————————————————————————|
D—————————————————————————7———7———5———5———4———4———————————————————|
A—————————————————————————————————————————————————7———7———5———5———|
E—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|
1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a
Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu

After youve worked on this for a bit, youre going to want to
learn how to apply this with a pluck with your index finger like
such

G———————7————————7————————7————————7——|
D—————————————————————————————————————|
A—5——5—————5——5—————5——5—————5——5—————|
E—————————————————————————————————————|
1e a 2 e a 3 e a 4 e a
Td Tu Pi Td Tu Pi Td Tu Pi Td Tu Pi

After youve worked that your going to take both thumb attacks
and both your middle finger and index finger, and hit every attack
with a different note like this

G—————————————————————————————————————————————————5———6———7———8———|
D—————————————————————————————————5———6———7———8———————————————————|
A—————————————————5———6———7———8———————————————————————————————————|
E—5———6———7———8———————————————————————————————————————————————————|
1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a
Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu Td Tu

And thats basically it. This is a great technique to use for
both slaps and playing really fast.
