    ----------8 x----------------6-------------------8---
    ------------------6-- h8 x----------8 ---6----x------
    ----6 x----------------------------------------------
    -----------------------------------------------------

    Fun little upbeat slap line I thought up when messing around in my early slapping days. It's still fun to play.

    Basically, play it at any speed you want. You can play it with any combination of notes as long as you keep the octaves the same and still get the same general beat. To get a good rythm going, speed up when you do the 6 hammer on 8, but play it at a nice slow beat for every other note.

    Another good thing to do is to replace the first popped muted note with another 8 and just play the whole thing really fast.

    If you want to build up speed gradually, a good thing to do is play that line at a normal/slow speed, then do this:

    -----------8 x----------------6------------------8----
    ------------------6---h8 x--------8----6-x-------6---
    ----6 x--------------------------------------x------
    --------------------------------------------------

    Then let the 6 and 8 notes ring for a second or two, and just break right back into the line at a fast speed.

    Enjoy. :hyper:

    I find myself doing lines like this all the time. Not quite the best thing for songs or solos, unless you're doing it really fast and with more triplets and muted slaps. Anyway, it's usually something like that that I start off with and slowly it progresses to something more musically interesting.

    Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhgggggggggggrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    Posting a song you wrote as a tab doesn't work, why?

    |----x------9---x-x-12-14------2-|
    |-------------------------0------|
    |-----5-7-x-----------------x-0---|
    |3-x----------x--x---------------|


    How fast is that, what style of notes are they, how are they timed, is it an odd time signature?? Ah, ya damn kids and your music.
