Hey, gang. I got my first 5 string bass this past December. Love it, love it! For as fast as I made the physical transition, the "mental transition" is taking a while. I'm even "testing" myself by chosing random notes and trying to name them as fast as possible. But some days it's like... !!! How long before you felt totally at ease with the mental aspect after you switched from a 4 to a 5 string? It really bothers me when I now have to stop and think about what note I'm playing. Any tips for learning the slap technique on a 5 string? I must admit that for what ever reason I never really tried to learn that technique in the past. Sure I messed around with it here and there a bit in the past, but not seriously. Any tips or video's for 5 string slapping? Can this old dog learn some new tricks?
