Slap that Bass!


The invention of the slap bass technique on electric bass guitar is generally credited to funk bassists Larry Graham and Louis Johnson. Graham once said he was trying to emulate the sound of a drum set, referring to the technique as "thumpin′ and pluckin′". Did you know the first recorded slap bass dates back to 1926?? Steve Brown, was a member of New Orleans Rhythm Kings. Legend has it that Brown played the string bass slap-style when the drummer failed to appear for a show. Brown threw down his bow and slapped the beat with the strings! .
