As per title. I'm serious, please - no flames. OK - I suck at slapping and that's why I'm probably a bit jealous too. Always wanted to learn it, but also always thought that it wasn't worth it considering the amount of work. Slapping sounds really cool when you sit in a music shop with a bass you pretty much sold your kidney to buy and just trying to impress the staff and other customers. Or if you want to play solo and show off then. Anyway - just show off. Has to be quick too because it gets boring after first minute. Does slapping have its place in songs? Anybody knows good songs with slapped bass (apart from Higher Ground by RHCP )? Your opinions please.
