Slap Guitar Basics - Overview and Exercises

Steve Hubbard 107 lessons

Welcome to my lesson on slap guitar!

A brief overview of the video:

- Combine both left and right hand technique.
- Use thumb for slapping, first finger for plucking, third finger on left hand for percussion over the fretboard.
- Try practicing groups of three vs. groups of four - i.e. triplets and quads.
- Experiment with different tones on your amp, as well as the different tones achieved by how hard you slap and pluck.

Have fun, and remember to always be as groovy as one can be!
