: damian is one of my tutors and the first thing he would tell i would think would be slap less,only a little here and there where necessary,try to just lay a nice straight line down at the low end.u only need to slap with the thumb gently if u had the gain higher but well controlled,ie with the palm of ure hand close to the strings,muting as u pull and pluck,any help?
: Hi there,

: I am really interested to learn to do all of that amazing fancy slap bass playing like Marcus Miller and Damian Keyes, but when I hit the string with my thumb it doesn't seem to make the note ring and it hurts a lot. Has anyone got any suggestions on how to improve my technique please?

: Sx
