Slap Bass Songs for Beginners – Fly Away

Slap Bass Songs for Beginners – Fly Away – Lenny Kravitz--> For this series of beginner songs for bassists, we wanted to include a couple of slap bass songs. This is a great song to learn – it’s a simple song that includes thumping, popping, and slapping as part of the bass line.

The song basically starts off with a simple groove A, C, G, D. Then during the chorus it moves it to a thump, pop, slap groove using the octaves of the same notes – A, C, G, D. The bassist is most likely using an envelope filter to create the effect during the chorus (probably activated by popping).

Here is Edson Barreto with a bass lesson and tutorial for “Fly Away”…
