Get the sound used by all the greats of early jazz, country and rockabilly. Unpack the rhythms and underlying patterns through examples of single, slap, double slap, triple slap, habanera, and more. Focus on proper technique for providing a solid pulse while avoiding fatigue. Pick up some fancy solo tricks and get answers to questions about strings, guts, steels, and more. Leave with a handout of exercises and a plan for continued practice. For advanced beginners. Please bring your own upright bass, notebook, and recording device.
