  1. Hi everyone,

    Simple question: How do you slap and pop? I don't quite understand what's involved. Whenever I try I seem to just end up muting the string!

  3. Thanks for the link, it looks great, but how exactly do you DO a "left hand fingerboard slap (ghost note)"?! :)

    This is how I do it (two different ways).
  5. Thanks! That's great!
  6. I've had a look around that site, it's a great link! Thanks a lot. I can't wait to try some of it out, but sadly my neighbours like to have an early night so I'll have to wait until tomorrow.
