    I wanted to know if anyone here has made up a cool slap and pop bassline that was smooth and catchy. Could anyone here tab out their line they either made up or just know that sounds pretty cool. Please don't say Higher Ground.

    This is the only good(at least I think it sounds good) slap line I've ever made. Actually I haven't really made it myself, I just made a variation of a guitar riff in one of our songs. The stupid thing is that I'm not a good slapper (I guess that's why I don't make many good slap lines, or the opposite way; I'm a bad slapper because I almost never slap.. ;) , so I have big problems playing it in full tempo :mad:


    It's all triplets, in two 4/4 bars
    ca. 200 quarters per minute
