    Hi guys,

    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.
