Bass Guitar Lesson: E Dorian Slap Groove With TAB And Notation

This short 2 bar bass groove uses some slap, hammer ons, pull offs and vibrato with an E dorian mode to create a cool funk slap bass line.

I take you slowly through each and every phrase and technique. It's best to play this slowly and then build up the speed after you have everything under your fingers.

You can download the TAB/notation and the drum groove below to practise to. The BPM is 107 if you want to add the drums to your DAW.

Here's the TAB and notation.
