Movie Reviews

Get slap happy
jlbjr | bay area, ca. | 07/29/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ed Friedlin is a monthly writer for bass player magazine. He covers in an excellent way how to slap, pop, mute, develop a groove, how to play with drum machines, ghost notes, and does some licks in larry graham, louis johnson, and marcus miller style and it is laid out in a very good manner. very good instructional video."
Seems good for beginners

"i really haven't seen any other instructional bass video, so i don't have anything to compare it to. that said, i would say it's a good video for beginners. i think it covers all the basics for slap, and even goes into to some advanced stuff as well. he also gives good licks and exercises and goes over slap, pop, dead notes, and other stuff i can't think of. he also goes into getting a good sound for slap, and some funk history. the one drawback, is i would say he's not the best speaker, so sometimes you can tell he's not sure how to explain something, but overall he does a good job."
Good for beginners

"It is useful for beginners. It is not intended for experienced players, but I think it describes the basic techniques for beginers very well. Do not expect it will rocet your slap playing, but if you are just starting, it will give you very solid basic knowledge."
Good Introduction for Slap Bass

"This DVD cleared up alot of problems I was having trying to learn this style. After viewing this DVD many times, I feel I have a solid foundation in which to build on. I am by no means a super slap funk player, but I do have mucho more confidence going into grooves that require this style as a result of studying this DVD. I highly recommend it."
