  4. Its kind-of hard to explain techniques over a forum. Theres different approaches, paralled thumb to the strings, lots of guys do this, vic wooten being one of them. you can also postion your thumb perpendicular to the strings, flea does this. The best way to learn is to get a video, like vic wootens Super Solo Bass Technique(there i didnt screw it up this time Wrong Robot). Actually all i realy know of good videos has to do with Vic wootens, so i wont list them all. Theres tons of good slappers and tons of good videos, you should check them out yourself and see what you come up with.
