Oct 13, 2014 - I really struggle with getting a good sound in my left hand slap, like I don't get that satisfying sound like in the video, more like a muted "thump". Anyone have any tips?

Michael Stoneham Says:

May 18, 2014 - how do you slap the A string with your thumb without hitting the E string its hard. should explain that. I find when i play the A string it is to quite. and i can't hammer on properly. 

bogoid Says:

Mar 30, 2014 - My second bass teacher was into funk, a hell of a beast when it came to slap. Now I find you, a master of the slap technique... You know what you both have in common? you and my teacher are bald :P that's the secret!!

Ayrat aerobass Says:

Aug 13, 2014 - and why do you need gloves?

ovelha Bass Says:

Sep 12, 2014 - why do you use that glove on his left hand is it to fluff the sound?

Ethan Pieper Says:

Sep 23, 2014 - Quick question: is the pluck/pop done with the finger plucking the string or a pull of the wrist? I'm pretty confident with the accuracy and sound of my thumb, but my pluck is weak and sends my hand into a crazy flight away from my strings (if that makes sense). 

Luis Cosme Says:

Oct 7, 2014 - can't wait to go home from work to start this! 

Andrei Quilondrino Says:

Sep 1, 2014 - is this slap can work in acaustic?
