Real Basstaster slap me playing basstaster slap sample I've only been playing bass for about 4 months after having played electric and classical guitar at a very ametuer level for a long long time. Slapping is giving me fits but I think I'm doing ok on the popping part. I also have not spent much time with the metronome so I'm working hard on overcoming a bad case of white boy (no) rhythm. The slapping is seriously weak on this I know, it's really just fingerstyle with a little extra pressure on the thumb. For the popping I actually am getting my fingers under the strings and pulling them up pretty well. I guess the slapping is just going to take time to get the feel of it so I can get a decent tone without stopping to hit it properly or driving it into the pickups or whatever. I'm also missing some stuff compared to the Basstaster sample but I haven't been able to identify exactly what yet. When I did try hard to get more bouncy slapping and wrist action going on, everything just got too out of control and noisy with only a decent slap tone every once in a while. Still couldn't get the same bop feel of the Basstaster though. Well that's no wonder since I have little experience, but I'm working on it and would appreciate any advice if you have any. If you could tell me what you think of what I have so far and especially what to do to improve it, any feedback would be appreciated. I also need to find a bass teacher. Any tips on what questions to ask or how to pick a good teacher would also be very welcome.
