I am getting very frustrated with a lot of the lessons dealing with slapping I have found on the internet. A lot of them talk about left hand slapping, yet they all just say "just hit the strings with your flat left hand and it should sound like a muted note" then they'll go on to put an audio clip of some bitch hard slap lick, (that of course has 3 other instruments to make it sound better) that supposedly uses this left hand technique. My problem is if I just whack the fretboard with my left hand, no matter where I hit it, a note, albeit a soft one, is going to sound unless I mute the strings with my right hand. Of course, if I'm going to take the time to mute with my right hand then why don't I just hit ghost note with my right instead of my left? Anyway I'm confused, perhaps someone here could explain to me with a little detail how to perform this technique properly?
