with Dave Roe

For many years Dave was a mainstay on the electric bass scene in Music City, but when a rare opportunity to play upright bass with the legendary Johnny Cash arose, he grabbed the bull by the horns and went for it – even though he had never played upright.

Dave demonstrates how to develop this exciting technique for rock, country, and jazz styles. Watch the video below to see Dave demonstrate the upright slap.
