When it comes to popping notes, most players will favour either their first or second finger. It’s nevertheless an excellent idea to be able to use either, and the previous video course (which covered double stops) should have afforded you ample opportunity to work on this.

In this course we’ll be taking this a step further and using the first and second fingers to pop notes in sequence rather than together. The combination of thumb slaps and first and second finger pops makes for another excellent way to play triplets, as you will discover from the exercises in this course. These can then be used as rhythmic figures that can add an extra dimension to your slap lines.
