    I was wondering what a thump/double-thump is, and how to do it? Ok, and also, I was watching some music videos on my computer, and Primus's Laquer Head came up, and I hadnt watched it in a long time. I can play the main part, but I know there has been a thread or two on this before, but what the hell is he doing on that solo, lolz, thanks... _-soto-_:bassist: :bassist:

    That's not double thumping. That the Left hand slap technique. Do a search on Laquerhead, this has been done before.

    Oh yeah: Thump mean slap with your thumb. So logically double thumping means a double slap. It's like using your thumb as a pick. I unfortunatly can not do this.

    more or less....translated the double thump method is an up-down motion with your thumb

    check out victor wooten...he is real good at it.
