So why do some people hate bass slapping? Oh yes, I know the argument about how some bass players will slapp on anything? they will slap at a funeral, a wedding march, someone drowning, the neighbors cat, etc,,,but is that a reasong to hate slapp? Here is a side bar (I remember a while back that people felt that if you played a bass with a pick, you were not considered a REAL bass player) (I am sure you would get quite a argument from Carol Kaye on that one) away from side bar now......... So whats up with the slapp haters? peace and blessings! hit hard, hit fast, hit often!
