THIS WEEK we’re looking at DOUBLE THUMB technique. You may have seen Victor Wooten and a hundred other Youtube virtuosos playing with this style. It’s simply a way of creating two slap hits out of one basic motion so we get two for the price of one by playing both an upstroke as well as a downstroke. This also gives us the ability to play REALLY fast slap lines.
However, it can be really, really tough to get started with. So I’ve provided a really easy riff that should help a lot with the absolute basics of the technique (single downstroke and upstroke).
