Sep 14, 2014 - Very informative! Thanks Scott! I'm trying to learn this on a 5 string. Is it tougher, because few folks I see playing slap are using anything above 4 string basses. Must be a reason...

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). 

TWG Says:

Sep 24, 2014 - Just for info - the movement you describe at the elbow is called pronation/supination :-)
