: : : : 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?
: : : :
: : : : Pat the best thing a young musician can do is not have anything to do with slap bass or what I call "bongo bass". It's played out and not hip anymore let alone by the time you learn how to play.

: : As a matter of fact, I play about 9 differrent instruments. I've never played a bongo though! I have better things to spend my money on, like books and video's about SLAP BASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LONG LIVE SLAP BASS!!!!!!!!!! HAIL TO FLEA!!! HAIL TO CLAYPOOL!! HAIL TO HAMM!!!!!!!! HAIL TO WOOTEN!! HAIL YO PASTORIUS!! HAIL TO PATTTUCI!! HAIL TO...............SLAP BBBBAAAASSSSSS!!!!!

: PASTORIUS???? WHAT have you been smokin???? He just rolled in his grave!!

The first time I heard Jaco, I was 18 or 19. The first thing I did was get a hammer and screwdriver. I went right to my bass and removed all the frets. It seemed like a good idea at the time! Needless to say, I don't play that bass anymore.HA!
