    Hi Everyone!

    I've been playing bass for about 4 months and I started slapping yesterday. I think I'm doing it right, but I'm not sure because everyone says that it's really hard to do and it takes a long time to learn. I recorded a clip in Sound Recorder of me playing the theme from Seinfeld (I'm basically sight reading it since I've only looked at it once yesterday). I would appreciate you to tell me if I'm slapping right and tips on how to improve it would be welcomed.

    The clip can be found here:
