Bass Tone

In episode 3 of the Bass Tone podcast, you’ll learn about the various playing techniques bass players can use to adjust their tone, including:

• Finger-style and plectrum playing
• Slap bass (slaps and pops)
• Hammer-ons and pull-offs (slurs)
• Tapping
• Slides

The episode is based on Playing Techniques Part 1 and Part 2 but Nick throws in plenty of new examples and demo riffs along the way, so even if you’ve read the corresponding Bass Tone articles, it’s definitely still worth listening to this episode.
