This week’s bass lesson covers something I’ve been asked about quite a lot over the past few months: The Double Thumb Technique. This is a slap bass technique pioneered by Victor Wooten and involves a very different kind of slap bass thumb motion. Have fun!!

    Thanks, Mark, great lesson always wondered how that worked…. Plus I always wanted to read music for bass but didn’t know where to start until your course.. Really clear to me… So grateful and thankful that you took the time to put that course together….. Thanks again…

    Check out Marcus Miller doing “What is Hip?” using this technique – crazy! Thanks for the clear and concise lesson, Mark.

    Liftin’ up the thumb I heve the feeling the saund is weaker and less sharp than thumbing downwards …. is it just a matter of practice ?
