    I dont know why but sometimes when i slap i start to rest my pinky on my neck humbucker, is this good?

    Am i supposed to have no rest at all? Just a whole floating hand?

    Well, personally i use all my 5 fingers on my rigth hand when slapping, and i never had a use for a pinky rest ;).

    I guess it's just about personal technique and preference. :)
