    Hey how's it going? i'm new to this forum so i apologize if these type of questions get asked frequently.

    Anyways, i've been playing bass, both upright and electric, for about 5 years now. I know all of the basic and intermediate bass stuff and i really want to improve on some techniques.
    I need to improve my slap bass and tapping techniques. Can anyone recommend and good websites/artices/bass books that will teach me how to do these?
    I basically just want to learn some harder techniques to master.
    thanks for your help!

    Instructional video's are probably your best bet. Any of the top bass master's from the last 15-20 years will have something decent to learn from.
