    My question is not how you do it.. I have the technique down fairly well.. but my one problem is sometimes other strings vibrate probably because i am hitting them when i double slap.. do i just need to tighten up on my technique or s there some muting techniques you guys know of?

    thanks

    You should always have good muting.
    You have to get better at it.
    Like when alot of people start out slapping their not accurate and their hitting a few different things.
    Double thumping is like learning all over again.
    Really pay attention to what your doing and start slow and lightly.Don't just mindlessly whack away.
