    Hey Everyone,

    What technique is used for that rapid type of popping sound? I can do basic pops but nothing rediculous. I'm referring mostly to Marchs Millers "La Villette" on his Silver Rain CD. He does some awesome popping there.

    I've never heard that track, but it's either a rapid succession of pops (using two or three fingers) or you might be confusing popping for Double Thumbing. It's not the first time I've seen an instance of that.

    Which part of the song is it which you need help on?

    At about 2.30 to a little over 3 min. of the song, he gets into this really quick little groove that I can't figure out for the life of me.

    That's double thumbing.
