    I've been playing bass for about 2 years now, but I havnt been really "playing"

    Just recently I have really wanted to expand my skill on the bass greatly. I have been using a pick for the last 2 years and I'm not that experienced with using my fingers.

    Can anyone help me out with what to do to tone my skills in plucking/slapping/fretplay for the bass?

    :bassist: Rock on!
  2. The best thing to do is search the internet for online lessons. That's the best way to go.

    That said, something that worked for me was this: take things that you can play and learn to play the finger style. Your left hand already knows what to do so you only need to think about the right. Only having to focus on one hand should really speed up your progress.
