: I would like to learn slap bass. I've been playing for a year now. I've had to teach myself. I just need some help with the theory/method of slap bass. Also whats Tic Tac bass?
the most important thing to remember is to not to try and by like flea (michael balzary) or to try and be like michael manring. try not to copy any one but still try to be open to every thing. alot of people now-a-days are using slapping as a way to show off. just remmeber a good bassest isnt the one who can slap and pop the fastest but is the bassest who isnt a victim of a guy whos all flash and no smash. because to be all flash and no smash is to not be a good bass player. if you cant play somthing calm and nice next to some thing that is hard and fast then neither of them can stand up to be there own thing
