Alex Canion Slaps Some Sense Into VOYAGER’s “The Domination Game” In This Bass Playthrough

My feelings on slap bass in heavy music are well documented. I think it adds a new element of sound and a different option for attack than just pick or fingerstyle, and plus, it’s damned impressive. Isn’t that a big part of metal appreciation?


Alex Canion of Voyager shows you how to slap it right in this playthrough of their song “The Domination Game” from the band’s album V. He does it tastefully and with no fucks given on his sweet Mayones.

I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
