    i love to play slap, and with my fingers. so far i am using ernie ball super slinky (5), and they are working out for me really good, but does anybody know a VERY good brand for slap, and a little fingers?? thanks--
     
  2. Hi Osolex I use Fender Jazz Bass string and they work really well for slaping.

    Ever try the Elixir brand?
     
  4. I think DR HI-beams or Fat-beams are great for both. Hi-beams are a little more flexible and you notice different playingstyles better with those IMO.

  10. PIECES OF FETTUCINI MADE BY MY GRANDMOTHER ARE WHAT I USE ON MY BASS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No, actually, I like Slowounds, but I don't slap much. I play pick style on occasion, though.
