Slap problems

Discussion in 'General Instruction [BG]' started by metallicarules, Mar 18, 2001.


  1. I'm a fairly new bass player and I am trying to learn how to slap. I understand how to do most of the basic things like slap, pop, and ghost notes, but I don't get how to do this left hand slap thing. I read that it should sound like a ghost note but I have no idea how to do it without just hammering one of the frets. I was hoping somebody here could explain clearly how to do this.
