Of course most of the time way before you do it, you will pluck the first note, but for practice sake you don't need to pluck. If you get a sound without plucking, you do it right.
This "not plucking the string" thing lead to a lot of others tricks, especially in slap bass line. Victor Wooten often slap a note with his thumb but hit 2 others notes with an HO-PO that are on another string.
So ultimately it will lead you to tapping.
Does not compute
