    Wow dude you guys are nasty! How'd you do that slap in the beginning? Just alternate thumb with a few plucks or what? Its awesome thought I was listening to a Vic chop

    Thanks man! It's a technique I developed by reading wrong the instructions of a slap book back in the day (no youtube then). It's sort of a karate move with the back of the palm, along with some double plucks.

    Haha awesome, its definately all your own, and that lick your buddy plays at 00:07 up until you rip is so catchy, I had that one stuck in my head all day at work
