Tenths are a very popular musical device for bass players to use, since they help us to more clearly define harmony. Tenths are by no means limited to slap bass, and you’ll certainly find a use for them in all areas of your playing. When playing slap bass grooves, tenths are often used in place of octaves, for added colour. In this course we'll be looking tenth intervals in detail, and examining how they can be useful to us when using the slap bass technique. After working through exercises that cover fretted tenths, we'll also be looking at open string tenths.
