This 60-minute DVD, by perhaps the biggest name in rockabilly bass, informs and entertains at the same time. Lee Rocker was the co-founder of the Stray Cats, the key group in repopularizing rockabilly through their many hits. He instructs new and experienced players in the spectacular multi-rhythmic slapping that defines this unique bass style. In addition, he shows how to combine right hand techniques with blues bass lines and arpeggios, and gives personal advice on getting the best possible sound. The DVD includes demonstrations of slap bass backed by his band Big Blue. It's a beginner level DVD.

Since the 1950s, when the Memphis-based rockabilly sound first swept the world, the acoustic upright bass has remained its showpiece and rhythmic mainstay. Lee Rocker, one of the masters of the “new wave” of rockabilly musicians, has made an informative and entertaining DVD that teaches the intricacies of the exciting slap bass style to players of all levels.

Slap bass combines the plucking of the bottom notes with the percussive hits that the palm makes when it slaps the strings against the fingerboard. By adding these right-hand techniques to blues bass lines and arpeggios, you’ll create spectacular multi-rhythmic slapping that will stop any show! This DVD also provides valuable tips on amplification, bass set-up and other methods of getting the best possible sound.

Big Blue’s hot performances of Goin’ To Kansas City, Big Blue Train, That’s All Right Mama, The Hucklebuck and Find Another Man illustrate how rockabilly slap bass techniques sound in the context of a live band performance.

Innovation Psychoslaps for psychobilly- (Psycho Slaps) Medium-Low Tension Strings

Innovation Psychobilly strings are designed specifically for Psychobilly players, to get the sound and feel required by the style. They are similar in design to the Silver Slaps and Golden Slaps, featuring a comfortable low tension. However, they are a bit thicker in diameter to help accommodate the ultra-fast slapping often required in "psychobilly" style music genres. With nylon core and windings, these strings don't work with magnetic pickups.

Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Slap Gut/Synthetic Upright Bass Strings
Pirastro Evah Pirazzi Slap Gut/Synthetic Upright Bass Strings

Pirastro really did their homework with the Evah Pirazzi Slap string. It has the soft feel and the prominent "click" that many rockabilly and psychobilly slappers are looking for, but it's also great for standard pizz playing, as well, with a real organic vibe. And the strings even bow really well! G and D strings available in plain gut OR synthetic core. Balance from string to string is exemplary; whether you're talking about tone or feel, you don't notice at all when you move from string to string. More than just a slap string!
