    fingerstyle, pickstyle, string tongue-lick, behind-the-head-guitaristical-shredding-a-solo playing...
  6. It is "slapping" that's from the root word "slap"
    and it is "popping" that's from the root word "pop"

    "slaping" would be from the root word "slape" (which doesn't exist)

    and "poping" would be from the root word "pope" (which only exists in Rome ;) )

    but +1 on the Tony Oppenheim thing

    God! I can't stand people like you.. Just because me and my buddies like to go down the block dressed like the pope, doesn't mean that we're bad people! Gah! Damn intolerant people! I can't stand them! Y'all should be slaped.
