Hello! I have a question for the six strings players of this forum: how your configuration affects your slap style? I've owned a sixer for a while, and I was really really comfortable with it, BUT it has not a good slap sound and to be truthful, I didn't know how I should modify my style to suit the bass. How do you do the so-called "machine gun triplets" and the other percussive, fast tricks? Do you still use the open E? Sorry, I'm a 4 strings player but I would be really happy to change my mind, if I can do the switch without affecting my slap (that is a huge part of my playing). Thanx a lot!
