Maybe this is an awful comment made at a bad moment but I've found slapping on Gary Willis signature basses to be rather "challenging" if you know what I'm trying to say.
I know that Gary is NOT ( currently ) a huge proponent of the "slapping" technique but if you actually listen to what he once did with a guitarist named Jeff Richman he actually was quite good at it at some point in time.
I actually like that Gary is a complete and total funk MONSTER on the fretless and now refuses to slap but I don't like that his signature basses are not so easy to slap on, due to the ramp, if you choose to want to do that.
But maybe there is some way to adjust it ( or something ) so that slapping may commence in it's full glory on such an instrument.
