I'm more than happy to pass on what little knowledge and experience I've been able to round up.
Curious though- do people suggest against perpendicular playing? I don't get out much, but the folks I've talked with never stated that one way was "better" than another- they just acknowledge that they are different.
FWIW- if anyone were to suggest perpendicular playing was "wrong" I'd make em look at that Joe Fick video I posted a link to earlier- nothin' wrong goin on there!
A good friend of mine who really helped me get my slapping where it is plays that way too- he's a BEAST!
I tried to convert to (or at least add) perpendicular playing to my repertoire but I couldn't get it to stick.
Keep on slappin!
