    Now, I'm not saying you suck, but Jazz Basses are killer slappers. Proper practice goes a long way when trying to achieve a good slap tone. How long have you been playing? What kind of amp are you playing through?
     
  3. wow im dumb lol. Iv been playing for roughly 2 years. All i have is a small crate amp, and after reading your reply, im like "DUHHHHH THE AMP" yeah, i take lessons and the slapping is awesome i guess i just forgot about good amps ^_^. thanx man

    Something else you might want to under consideration is how well it plays for finger style. You didn't say anything about so I am assuming that it is fine, but if not you may want to get it set up.
