Ok I've been playing bass for like a year and a half. I'm decent my tecnique is still far from perfect....seing as I have hard time playing clean with a pick. Anyway speaking of technique....Slapping. I love it sounds cool, yet I suck at it. I try to mock people when they slap, but I always seem to come out crappy and buzzy sounding. I have the priveledge of seeing the Red Hot Chili Peppers last night, and I got to watch Flea slap. He looks like he attacks his Bass with his thumb when he slaps, but when I do that it sounds like sh**. I'm obivously doing something wrong. Most of the crappy buzz come from the higher frets too like on the E string, If I were to smack my string with my thumb I would get horrible buzz, on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. Can some please help me or send me a link on how to slap well. Oh and please not the Dalton guy I've watched him like god knows how many times and it still hasnt helped.
