Anyone have any book recommendations?
I recently bought
Slap and Pop Technique for Guitar (Private Lessons)
by Jean Marc Belkadi (Composer)
It's ok but I'm wondering what else is out there?
Thanks Richard. I agree that he's wonderful with that stuff. I wonder if he plays bass also?Originally posted by rh

You could check with him about their availability. He does that stuff on guitar better than anyone I've seen (not that I've seen a lot of it) and he's an extremely generous person.
Thanks! I'll pick that up.Originally posted by Jon Silberman
I have not personally seen the book below but I have taken lessons from Dennis at the National Guitar Workshop and he snaps 'n' pops like Rice Crispies! I'm sorry we don't live closer so I could show you some examples of the snappin' and poppin' licks he taught.
Which bass methods do you like?Originally posted by Marcello
why don't you just grab a bass method that deals with snapping/popping ? it's basically the same technique on guitar.
I didn't like the belkadi book, he starts right away with hard stuff and there are no explanations.
I found a few things but mostly videos with no accompanying music or lesson. Anything specifically you'd recommend? In the meantime, I've picked up a bunch of stuff from Victor Wooten. Maybe that's the best way to go (copying funk bass stuff)Originally posted by guitarlix
You'll find exactly what you're looking for at chopsfromhell.com
Not sure, I lived in Nashville for many years and was able to see the Wooten Bros. together in small clubs a couple of times. I don't really know what Reggie has done recording-wise, I just assumed he had stuff out there-sorryOriginally posted by jzucker
I've been trying to. Other than Victor's recordings does he have any cds or books out?
