For practise purspose I am using toilet paper instead of the buddha rope I put it at the last fret and practise slap for a higher tension and muting strings, it is better for me to practise left hand slap and slap. It can damage the nut of my musicman stingray bass? This is what I mean with the buddhar rope at min 31 bill dicken explain it and before he used a toilet paper. I am planing perhaps to put another cloth for this purspose, do you know the aproximate width or anything I can use, without damagin the bass??
