    Hi All,

    I have been working no my slapping and popping techinque.

    My problem is when I practice in octives....Slapping on the 6th string and popping on the 2nd strings

    As I go up higher (say 8 fret on up) and pop and release on the 2nd string I get this buzzing sound...

    Could it be that my action is to low or could it be my techinque?

    I find that when I am mute shortly after popipng and releasing it sounds better...

    Thanks Greekbassist!

    yes your action is probaly low,get it setup. As for technique just practice till it sounds better.
