ok, i know that there have been posts on slap already and i have read all of them but i just dont get them. i am a true begginer. When i went to but my bass some guy was slapping and kinda showed me how and that was probally the best advice i got. everybody says that you have to slap with the inside of your thumb by your knuckle, but every time i try to do that i hit it with my whole thumb and not just the joint. when i do this it just doesn't sound right. i tried to look for an online video but i can't find one and i won't be able to go out and buy any program any time soon. i would really appreciate any advice so thanks so much.
