    Venturing back into fretted basses after 10 years of fretless. I'm looking for some good slap videos or websites. Any recommendations?
  2. What, ten years and you never slapped the fretless?

    Is it technique you're wondering about, or info on slapping in ways that people want to hear?

    Never did any slapping on it. I couldn't get the right percussive sound. Probably not doing it right. Hence...looking for learnin material.

    Look for Alex Sklaresky's video on slapping. I think it's the best one out there. Ed Friedlands is good too but not quite as thourough as Sklaresky's.
