Sean The Shag Nowland is a bass guitarist in Portland, Oregon.  He has played LITERALLY thousands of shows in Portland, the Western States, Europe, and Asia.

Sean Nowland is accepting new students.  Learn theory, scales, and improv but mostly learn to SLAP THE BASS.

Teaching SLAP & POP TECHNIQUE to beginners and experts alike is my specialty.

This lesson demonstrates the basic slap and pop technique.  It can be counted 6/8  “one two three four five six”, one count for each distinct feature or it can be counted “tri ple et – tri ple et”.  A triplet is 3 notes over one beat.
