: Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks. Played in bands and quit 15 years ago. Joined a band again. Working on adding the thumping/slap thing to the vocabulary. Any advice would be very, very appreciated. Thanks,Duke

Hi there,
Much has been said and written against videos as valid music teaching methods. Anyway, if it´s a particular technique what you're trying to learn, I think videos work fine. Even better thatn books, BTW, because you get to actually see the player/teacher employing the technique you're interested in.
That said, I got some intereseting ideas from Stu Hamm's "Slap, Pop, & Tap for the Bass" Tape. I'm not sure wether you can find it around these days (it's a fairly old tape), but it's definitely worth checking out. Also, my teacher tells me Alexis Sklarevski's tape is another good investment, too, although I still didn't have the chance to check it out.
Hope this helped. Buena suerte and keep that bass up front in the mix,
El Pájaro
