    hey ive been playing for 2 years now and i stll cant slap without hitting other strings. is there a method or secret that im missing out on
     
  2. Practise :)

    its technique more then anything, try and get your hand round the bass a lot more, can't really explain it, study mark king and Bill dickens technique and you'll see.

    but practise is the thing.
