Ok, I know that we all have heard it before. You know what I am talking about the wicked sound of someone like Vic, Stu Hamm, Jaco, even Flea slapping a string then quickly flickihg their thumb upward popping the string again and then slapping downward causing an insanely fast bid-a-badda sound. Or however you interpret the sound. I know that I can get better at this if I practice. But I dont exactly know the proper technique. I guess I ues too much thumb or something. I consider myself to be a great bass player, I have an awesome ear going for me I just lack the technical skills. I guess what I should do is get a teacher or something. But, before I do that, I am going to ask you guys "My fellow bass players" for some advice. Please, if you know how to correctly, tell me the correct form and maybe a few small helpful techniques to quicken my right hand slap and pluck speed. Thank you.
Wishing I was Stu Hamm
