Tosin Abasi Animals as Leaders slap / thump thumb technique lesson! 2013

I now do private one on one lessons via Skype worldwide! Increase your knowledge of scales, theory, modes, chords, arpeggios, and more with me. Flexible times and great low rates. Hit me up! I've been getting requests to do a video lesson on the super cool guitar slap/thump technique for a LONG time now. Finally got around to making the most comprehensive video lesson i could! I think this will help you out for sure. This technique has been brought to the spotlight by Tosin Abasi and Javier Reyes of the band Animals as Leaders, and it seems like more and more players are sneaking little bits of this into their playing. Its a ton of fun. As i mention several times in the video, its basically just a really quick REST STROKE with the thumb. Be sure not to make a TON of contact with the string, you don't want or need your entire thumb pushing through it. Just graze it with the edge and that's about all you need! I do not cover much about the role of the other fingers here, just the thumb and left hand. I will get around to doing another video on how to use your index, middle, and ring fingers too if you all want it! PLaying my swirled Ibanez RG7621 here, with Dimarzio Crunch Lab and Liquifire 7 pickups in it. Sounds amazing!
