What's the fastest slap technique anyone's ever heard? To put that question in context, I think someone like Stanley Clarke is pretty fast when he does that quick fingerstyle thing, and using three fingers at a time he can pretty much make it sound like he's shredding. Not as fast as Billy Cobham shredding, but still pretty fast for a bass player. So, two questions really. One is, have you ever heard anyone slap as fast as Stanley can do fingerstyle? And the other is, what other bass players come to mind that can shred like that (and maybe even be more melodic about it)? Edit: mods, I'm really trying to get to a technique question here, but I wanted to ask it this way first, and just realized that as it's framed it may be more appopriate for the bass players forum, so feel free to move it if that's the case.
