    Im starting to Slap+Pop and Im noticing that when I slap i get a buzz because the string is vibrating so strong its hitting the frets. It sounds fairly good if I turn the amp up way loud because the buzz doesnt get amplified but Im wondering if im doing something wrong? Any general tips on a new slapper>? Thanks
  2. You may need to slap a little harder. It's supposed to hit the frets at least once.

    hit it softer and take your bass to the nearest shop and get it setup. if anything it sounds like your action is too low.
