ok - i'm finally bored enough to teach myself to slap. I can cope with the basics, at least have enough of a grip to tech myself how to get a bit better (not as good as with fingers / a pick though) - but i cant seem to hit the d + g strings without smacking into neighbouring strings. Do you mute the others, or just practice until you're accurate? Any miscellaneous tips for a beginning funkster with intermediate "other" bass skills would be great. Thanks.
