Evening! Uhm, I have an interesting question. Well, I've been told my slap style is indeed
"unorthodox", but I'm not talking about song-wise. I mean technically. My normal and most
frequently used style is my wrist resting above the strings, about 4-5 inches from the
bridge. My thumb is semi-parallel with the strings. It's kinda like making a 'thumbs up', but with my fingers cupped looser so I can pop. Well, if anyone is semi-familiar with this style (which I hope someone is), I'd like
a few pointers. Am I slapping ENTIRELY wrong? It feels comfy for me, but is it effective? Any help or pointers would be cherished!
