    When I opened this video I was shocked. Never seen a black bass with pearl cover. Mine is a Squier Precision Bass (Korea). Came with a white cover but I changed it because it broke (previous owner). I thought it was such a random combo but I ended up liking very much the end result. Still thought I was the only nutso with one like that.

    Im so weird. Im a guitarist that loves shredding, power metal, and heavy metal, but i also think slapping is the one of the coolest things ever, and went ahead and learned slapping on guitar XD

  11. I noticed that when you do the downstroke that you anchor your thumb on the string below it. Most of the videos I've watched the players let their thumb bounce. This is probably one of those there is no right way situations, what do you find anchoring your thumb vs. Bouncing it to have some advantage with control or muting.

  12. Why do you have a woman's hair and around the first fret nut? What make and model are you using for your metronome?

  13. This was done so well! Subbed

  14. You explain very well.

  15. Reduce speed at 0.75 to watch it normally.

  16. What is that around the neck of the bass

  17. Wow!! Good!! From Guatemala!!!
