    Hi, Can anyone tell me how to do the Slap solo in the song Panther by Marcus Miller? The bit i want to play is where he goes into very very fast triplets (i think he does this a lot) P-Nut does it also in the slap break in Come Original. Whats the name for it?

    errrrr there is absolutely no info on victorwooten.com about double thumbing, y'all seem to be confusing double thumbing with vics open hammer pluck technique.

    Double thumping is really simple
    simply slap downward on the string, hitting the string and going past it, then pull your thumb back up.
    so its like slapping only going down/up...down/up...down..up....etc.
    the concept is simple....its a strange technique at first, but after a little while it becomes pretty natural(similar to when you first start slap techniques)
    it just takes practice, a little coordination, and practice.
