Currently, he continues recording and performing with many artists in the U. How did you end up a bass player? AS : I actually started out on piano when I was 5 or 6 years old and continued until I was 15 or so. I worked through a pretty decent repertoire of classical music and I could play some Beethoven, Bach, Chopin waltzes…that sort of stuff. The best thing was that I learned how to read music at the same time I learned to read words.

I can't stop slapping. I slap all day, on my leg as I walk to work, on the desk in meetings, and when I get home Then a couple days later I go down the guitar shop to see my buddy who works there, and I tell him all about my new addiction.

The slap sound is something else, and I took it down to rehearsals with my heavy metal band today and what d'ya know, it fits in great there as well! So thanks, Alexis, for making me fall in love with playing bass all over again Sarah x www. Nov 26, 2. Oct 22, Hamilton, ON. Nov 26, 3. Jun 9, Israel. Nov 26, 4. Mar 17, Sweden, Stockholm. Nice to see a chick who plays metal Maybe i should try that DVD.

Nov 26, 5. It's the only instructional DVD I've ever rated well maybe apart from John Myung's, although that's just worth watching for gawping at. I'd definitely recommend it.

Nov 26, 6. The Slap Bass Program gets five stars at Amazon. It's on my purchase list at the moment. Good luck with your new bass. After all, it's a real bass with the requiste four strings.

I like the Buckcherry track. Nov 26, 7. There's nada wrong with 5 strings Avid!!! But yeah, I do love it. If you do one thing this year, get that DVD. I'm a big fan!

He comes across as a great guy in the video as far as you can tell although his dress sense was a little If you feel like PMing me his email I'd love to drop him a line myself!

Nov 26, Jul 7, Glasgow, Scotland, UK. Congrats Sarah! Slapping is a great tool Oh and the rule You're not the first person who's said that James! The only prob is I seem to be surgically attached to the bass I'll take one later though and get it up here Mar 22, Great story. To Maurilio: Does he ever smile in real life?

Jul 11, Marathon Man. I'm a bit of slap-addict myself! Oh, for the joys of slap bass. There is just something so satisfying about "machine gunning" it and rattling off loads of muted slaps and pops.

The Slap Bass Program

Over the past several years The Slap Bass Program has become the undisputed bible of slap technique. The video has garnered more accolades and critical acclaim than any other program of its kind. The material has been remastered and finally released on DVD with extensive chapter breakdowns and extra features. Bass Institute of Technology BIT instructor Alexis Sklarevski is a phenomenal teacher, and has the rare ability to put all the pieces together in a refreshingly logical, integrated fashion. He is incredibly thorough, and his demonstrations with a guitarist and drummer show how this dynamic style can be applied in almost any musical situation.


Alexis Sklarevski just cost me $1500!!
