Funny you should say that as ive just been out to by some bongos to aid my slapping style (No Bull) I do agree and understand what you are saying BUT and this is a big BUT - What good is a song or melody without a groove and you cant get a groove tith no rhythem. Im no great `Slapper` And would like to know more but i am a proficient Fingerstyle bass Player....I look at it like this - I dont actually play any slap bass in my band as it is unalled for but if ever some one asks you to play sommet its nice to know. Also it is a great style for working with a drummer and building up rhythem...........Dont be put off Guys by the previous Dissing of Slap BUT do listen to the advice given about creating your own style and dont worry if that includes a bit of slap and tickle.....Hey, the next time i come up with a totally original Idea ill be a rich man!
