hehe, in the last two days, ive improved so much in slapping. i guess its because ive been practicing alot only slapping lately. ive also figured out some good combinations of volume(of each pickup) and tone on my bass with the eq on my amp. i practiced mixing slapping and popping together, and even plucking normally. and at the same time my improving skills have gotten better too, cuz i was just improving over some minor, major and dominant chords and scales. and inventing some cool chord progressions while playing. but mainly i practiced Imin7 then IV7 over and over. this thread is quite useless, i guess its reason is to show that practice helps and also that im getting better at slapping.
