: how do you play slap bass and what strings and pick-ups are best for it??????????
The first thing you should have in mind when playiing slap bass is to keep your thumb as parallel as you can to the strings, and also keep your wrist near th body of the bass (you don't have to play too ard, too). This basic lines will allow you to start up with slap.
Also here you have an exercise I think might be useful fot you:
Start on C ans it's octave and do it on all the fingerboard
first use only 1/4 then start 1/8 1/16...
I hope this to be useful to you.
