    I am not currently studying slap but I would be happy to help. What are you using to lead your studies? "Slap It" by Tony Oppenheimer is often cited as the best book. I have been meaning to pick up a copy myself.

    Who are you molding your technique after? There are a lot of different slap styles. I started doing it Flea style, bouncing off the strings, but I now much prefer the Victor Wooten/Marcus Miller school where you follow through with your thumb.

    Well the best way is find a path and follow step by step each exercise. I suggest you to get Slap It, is still the best book to develop basic slap rules and develop your slap grooves dictionary.
    When you complete at least the 60% of the book than you can consider other books to extend the limits of your technique
