    What does slap and GAS mean? Any other terms would help.

    And I did use a search function, just that it came up with too many results of not what I'm looking for :p

    Thanks.

    Slap = a playing technique in which you use the joint of your plucking hand's (i.e. right if you're right-handed) thumb to "slap" the strings.

    GAS = Gear Acquisition Syndrome. To suffer from GAS means to lust for new equipment.
