Double Popping Technique

This technique is reasonably hard to grasp. At first it may seem very basic, but to get the "popping" fingers working independently is harder than it first sounds. In this exercise I've used the two pops on different strings, but it can also be used by popping the same string in quick succession (a tad trickier, but sounds cool).

I started playing bass 5 years ago when i was 16, playing in a rock cover band in and around my home town. My influences are Billy Sheehan, John Myung, Nick Fyfe, and Stu Hamm. Although I'm mainly a rock bassist, I still enjoy playing different styles, Blues, Funk and jazz amongst them. I'm currently at uni studying math, but one day I hope to take my bass to the next level and study music. Check out my site at for more details. or contact me at for anything bass related or anything you really want!

My rig is simple. I play an Ibanez 6 string bass, active electronics.....the usual standard of instrument. I also use a 4string yamaha which I've de-fretted. My rig consists of a compressor, and a Behringer BX-1200 amp..small and not very loud, but superb tone!

I play in an original rock band called terria (, and we're available to play anywhere in and around the central belt of Scotland. I try to play as much as possible, whether it's plugged in or not. Rock on! And keep practicing!
