    There should be a ton of threads on this under technique. Just go do a search. There is a wealth of information on this topic already...

    Yeah, I think "Technique" will do...off you go.
     
  4. Well do you feel comfortable with your left hand and right hand? If not then keep practicing before you begin slapping. If you feel you are then good, type search for Slapping and you will be on your way (sorry im in the middle of class right now so i cant explain how to do it).
     
  5. Check out Michael Dimin's web site. He has some great thoughts and lessons on slap technique.
