The slapping and popping style employed by bassists is a very popular method to enhance a rhythm guitar part. This C minor example explores rhythmic playing from both the right and left hand along with chord choices and short phrases that are similar to 70's funk and modern hip-hop. The progression is very short but serves as a way to demonstrate a phrase that is strong enough to be used as a consistent rhythmic part; both solo and with additional instrumentation.
