I am having trouble with my slapping technique. Now I'm no Claypool but I can get by (through much help from other TBers) with a decent homemade slapping technique. But now I am posed with the problem of getting a clear tone when slapping high notes (anything above the the 7th fret on the bottom three string). I know this is possible since I've seen so many people do it, such as Les Claypool (in an interlude in Tommy the Cat, he slaps a sliding rundown starting on the 17th fret of the E string) And I would like to be able to do this, even if it's just to open a song with a slapped slide. It may just be the bass, since I don't have the best bass for slapping (Squier Affinity P-Bass) I know that might be one of the reasons for my hindrance, but I do know that it may be harder, but anything that can be done on one bass, can be done on another. If anyone has any suggestions to help me overcome these problems. It's not anything urgent or anything vital, but I would appreciate any advice.
