Is there a certian finger that goes in on a certian string when you slap. (EX: thumb on E and A, Index finer on d and middle on g.) 2. Why is it harder to pop d that g when going fast 3. Do most VERY good players (victor wooten) pop a. 4. is the playing the only way to get faster. (workouts) Thanks for the input. I apreciate it.
