omg im like losing my mind, k im talking with my buddy who is a guitar player about our progression in musical talent and **** and hes like until u can slap bass perfectly i wont even consider u a real bassist seeing as it is the easiest and most widely used technique of any good bass player. wow i blew up on him i mean slap sounds good but omg i wanted to strangle him. aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh i mean i cant slap well and i dont see it fitting in with my coice in music and also this is not to say i dont want to get better (i do, just for another technique in the bag) but this seriously upset me. im sorry all i know there r a few too many threads like this but i had to vent im like seriously choked at this guy. thanx for listening.
