    :confused: I would like instructions of how to slap bass. Just clear instructions- straight text or a link to some good website. Also ofcourse if you have any tips on how to practice it and about how long it usually takes to learn it would be handy. Thanks
  2. ok... when I wanted to learn slapping and popping a few months ago, I made a research and it took me about 30 seconds to find a good slapping and popping lesson... research is not too hard, dude.
    Here are the links from the website I learned slapping and popping:

    Slapping and Popping, lesson 1
    Slapping and Popping, lesson 2
    Slapping and Popping, lesson 3

    And there is no time to learn it, it's just how you practice. I practice about 1 hour a day, and it took me about three weeks to be at ease with slapping and popping. It depends of the regularity of practicing.
