    Hello pals, I'm trying to learn how to slap....the problem is that i've never seen a bassist slapping the bass. From the text files i've read, i cannot imagaine how is it done.

    If anyone there has a picture, email it to me please, or explain me the technique in simple words as my first langauge is not english.

    thanks.

    Um perhaps you could see the techinque from Ibanez's website, at ibanez.com. Click on 'basses' and eventually
    you'll see flashintro where slapping is shown. Or, you can
    find some videos especially from Victor Wooten.

    Thanks chap, now i've seen the position for slapping....

    Erm, it seems more difficult than i thought!! But the sound is very nice.
