    This guy has a lot of youtube videos about playing slap bass. This one is just crazy where he plays underwater.

    No way Jose! :cry: Let him play underwater. I am not going to play my bass in that kind of environment.

    By the way, is he awake? His eyes seem to say that he is about to fall asleep.

    I can see him and his band mates, drummer and all, underwater! :eek:

    Well of course. It seems to be working. :sneaky:

    Hey Mike- you could modify your tag line. "if you aren't in over your head you never need to learn to SLAP!"

    actually he is a very talented musician. His shtick in the videos is people send him lines or solos as a challenge and invariably he can play it and nails it.

    Here's one where he challenges another "pro" bassist. It looks like they are friendly competitors and just playing up the "rivalry" for views, Some incredible bass playing in this video. I'm not a big fan of slapping and tapping on the bass (maybe 'cause I'm no good at it) but still you have to give them credit.
