A bass guitar lesson on slapping from the legend flea himself

Born in Australia in 1962, Michael “Flea” Balzary started out as a jazz enthusiast.

He was a talented trumpeter growing up. In high school, Flea turned to punk and rock.

He formed the Red Hot Chili Peppers with three friends from high school. The band had its first hit album, BloodSugarSexMagik, in 1991.

More successes have followed, including 2006’s Stadium Arcadium and 2011’s I’m With You.

In this lesson Flea explains in details the technique called “Slapping”.
