Incredible bass-slapping technique

January 15, 2012

Through my usual weekend trawl of bass playing clips on YouTube, this caught my eye today. It’s a superb display of bass playing, using the “slap” effect:

Dal Farra’s virtuso playing (and I don’t use that phrase lightly) is truly marvellous. It is fluid and utilises a range of well-executed techniques, including slapping, bass chords, strumming, and pinched harmonics. In places, it almost looks like Dal Farra is playing a regular guitar, with his strumming attack style and use of barre chords.

Truly inspiring.
