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. Now, Dave has earned the reputation as one of the country’s finest upright bassists, especially within the highly specialized world of slap/rockabilly bass. 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.
