  4. I did a speech about bass playing for my speech class, I mainly winged it through cuz I brought my bass so every time I started losing my train of thought I just played something. 'Bout the most I can tell you is Leo Fender invented it in 1951 and Larry Grahm invented Slap Bass and it was originally was supposed to be played with your thumb, that's why old ones have the little plastic bar under th g-string.
