Comments about Hal Leonard Bass Slappin' and Poppin' (DVD):
I've played classic rock since before it was "classic" and I've always wanted to learn how to slap and pop...this video broke it down so well that I'm using the technique to play everything from old Motown to 70's Funk to Chili Peppers. This fantastic video has something for everyone and I highly recommend it to any bass player at any level!!!
