I have been slapping since I began playing bass because it has always appealed to me. I started out playing Higher Ground a lot and consequently I accidently slap a note twice when I only mean to slap it once which can be quite frustrating. Is there anything I should do to correct this? The major problem I am having is muting notes when slapping and popping octaves (example Alright by Jamiroquai - http://youtube.com/watch?v=rND8EqzxcA4), I keep muting when I slap by accident instead of slapping the actual note. I am fretting the note correctly but my right hand is muting it. Does anyone have any exercises or solutions to this problem? Thanks in advance.
