1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please make yourself at home! I've deleted the previous "migration" threads, please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

Recommend me some great slappers to listen to...

    Try Larry Kimpel (George Duke), Louis Johnson (Brothers Johnson) and Larry Graham (Graham Central Station). I believe Larry Graham is the father of slap bass.

    Hellborg has a unique slap style that's pretty different from the other listed.
