    The exercises in this slap bass course are perfectly paced to help you develop a solid slap bass technique. Each lesson is well explained and helps you to grow-as-you-go in speed and accuracy. I am thoroughly enjoying this course and I have already marked my next purchases from the TalkingBass shop. Thank you Mark for a great course. I’ve tried for years to get to where this course has taken me in just one month.

    I struggled for years to learn slap bass without success. This course was the key. The results are amazing. It goes far beyond anything you can find by searching the Internet for “how to play slap bass”.

    If you already have a good foundation on the basic slap/pop technique and your progress has stalled, this course will definitely lift you out of your rut. It contains dozens of points on the finer details of advanced slap technique.

  4. Brandon G. (verified owner)

    This course is great for anyone wanting to learn slapping from the beginning, or enhance their existing skills. I found the hints and tips that Mark gives during the lessons were so helpful in assisting me to hone my slap technique. As a result I am also a lot more relaxed when I play slap these days!

    I have never really managed to play slap bass lines cool. Coming across this course I started from scratch once again and it works out quite well. So, there is a clear “thumbs up” from me.

  8. Brad F. (verified owner)

    Really glad I made the investment. Self paced course so you can go back and review the videos as required. Mark does a great job of breaking down each of the techniques presented in each course. It’s been great in help retrain my fingers and correcting many years of fully ingrained bad habits.

  9. Ulrich H. (verified owner)

    You feel and here a little progress with each lesson. After working through the course it’s a big progress.

  10. Mick T.

    I find Mark to be one of the best online instructors. Lessons are always clear, concise and easy to follow. The lesson on slap bass is excellent value for money and you get to learn the technique properly without picking up bad habits as you would from less accomplished players.
    Bassically (I know it’s not spelt right) you can’t go wrong with TalkingBass lessons.

    I had only the most basic idea of slap technique before I started to study Mark’s Slap Bass Course. The most significant thing for me was the clear break-down of all relevant parts of slapping technique with with great demonstrations and perfectly designed practical exercises to master each technique. It took me a couple of months to complete both courses (minus the double thumbing, which is almost impossible to do on my short scale basses with tight string spacing). I re-visit the more advanced exercises frequently to get more and more relaxed and confident in my slapping. I can recommend this program to anyone who wants a deep-dive into slapping bass technique.

    The course is very clear and offers a step by step developing of the technique.
    Mark is an astonishing teacher who provide tons of useful exercises and very well explained.
    Thank you very much Mark!
