So I've been playing bass for about two and a half years now.. and I never really got into any extreme playing like slap and pop or tapping. I've been working really hard and I can do pretty good right now with slapping, but there's some stuff I haven't learned or don't understand that I could really use help with. The dead notes, for example. I can do them, but I can never put them into my playing really, and I don't understand how to do like the triples and everything. Also, I can never get much out of tapping. Is there a specific way to do this other then just.. well.. tapping the strings with your fingers? Lastly, if you know any good ways to improve slapping or any good tricks while slapping, please let me know... because I can use all the tricks I can get. Thanks!
