I know this isn't the place to talk slap bass but for my question it is. I play orchestral music (arco). I'm not really interested in playing slap style bass but my question is, is slap bass something that all double bassists can do even if they don't use it? I don't even want to try it on my bass because it's not setup for it. Do you think Edgar meyer, Gary Karr & bozo paradzik can slap too? Or would they be lost. Food for thought.
