Could someone please explain to me how shoud i pop. Thanks
Fret a note. Let's say, 7th fret on the G string. Pull the string towards you and let it go. It should hit the fretboard and 'pop'. That's about it. For an easy slap-pop riff, try the verse of "Fly away" by Lenny Kravitz.
Don't really go under the strings, cause then you will starting to eat strings. => don't use the tops of your fingers but the border of them
(man, I hate trying to explain something in English, but I like to explain )
shouldn't you pull it away from you?
lol: sit on a chair, look at your hand(so you have to move your head down), then pull the string in the direction of your face.
(found this out sitting on my chair with my bass, and writing this)
A good tip is this:
Use the thumb slap motion to place your index and/or middle finger in popping position.
That way you save time and this enables you to play really fast slap/pop combinations.
Practice popping the lower strings too, since it's harder than popping the G.
