    It's on my list but hasn't been there long.

    Are you talking about the 2 note pop sequence?

    step 1. Those two notes on the first pop sequence I play on the A string, 10th & 9th fret, then the slide.

    step 2. Then the next pop sequence, A string at the 9th fret, D string 11tn fret, E string 9th fret, D string 11 th fret.

    repeat step two

    repeat entire sequence.

    That's it. I use two fingers and let my nails help pull the strings up for the pops. Someone may have a better technique.

    It sounds like all pops to me. If there are any slaps there I can't hear them.

    After listening to it a million times, I think there is slap in there but it is pretty much inaudible.
