Slap Technique: Bounce vs Rest Stroke

2017-11-04T12:17:36+00:00January 16th, 2016|6 Comments

This week I’m looking at what I call the Rest Stroke slap technique which has been made really popular by Victor Wooten.
The lesson looks at differences between the bounce and the rest stroke and the pros and cons of both.

    I agree with Joe. At the end of each lesson I would like see Mark ‘show off’, displaying just what can be achieved as a result of what was presented

    Yes. Fantastic lesson. This is the only lesson I’ve found that properly addresses the two different techniques. It was a great help.
