Slap-Style Bass

Discussion in 'Technique [BG]' started by -executor-, Feb 2, 2006.

  1. Anybody know any good websites I can learn this for free?
    Also if anybody can just tell me, I just want to know exactly how to slap the string with the thumb and pop it with the index finger because I am a little bit confused with the hand motions.
  2. There are many techniques. Just search, dude. This has been covered to death........TWICE. :D

    another 'how do i slap pop' topic...

    ok first try and figure out why u r wanting to slap pop. is it so u can look flash and it impresses people, or is it becouse u like the tech or love all funk, if its the first one thats not a good start

    its really hard to tell someone over the net so you can walk away and completly understand what i was talkin about, if u dont have a teacher, get a slap lesson video, i recomond louis johnsons slap licks video, and then learn some very easy songs with slap pop in them, and gradually build to harder ones, and watch as many live shows of people doin it and look at how they r doin it n stuff like that
