Well, I'm new to slap and I think I've got the hand motion down, finally...but now come two other problems. first, I've read you're supposed to slap right next to the end of the neck...but when I do this, usually I hit the string too hard(if it's the E or A...this won't happen with the D or G when I slap them) and it hits somewhere on the neck(I can't tell exactly where it hits either-probably the 1st fret or the end of the neck) which creates a horrible sound nothing like slap at all. And when I do slap right and soft enough so it won't hit the neck, it's so soft I can barely hear it(and it still doesn't sound completely right). I can make do somewhat better quite close to the bridge(actually, this is my preferred place to play) but it still sounds wrong. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong, any ideas?
