I havent played anything like Fourplay or Lee Ritenour's music, mostly because I dont know the way to slap so softly to sound good. I slap like Flea mostly, hard and fast. I just needed to know how to develop that "Jazz Slap" sound that most Pro bassist have. I have not played bass in a while so I need to practice a lot. Can someone gimme some advise? Is there anything special about the bass, to play this kind of music?? Would a Tobias Toby pro help me develop this kind of sound?
