i picked up how to slap and pop very fast. you need to remember that playiong bass isnt just about the slapping. alot of bassests are using slap and pop as a form to show off. DONT. it depends on how high you keep your bass while stood up. if the bass is low then the thumb points towards between the floor and the neck if the bass is high up then the thumb shood be more toward the neck use either you middle finger or your index finger (i use my middle finger)you know how people play air guitar well plar air bass. where ever you are do the slapping method every where and after about 2 weeks of it when you get on to your bass you'll be as fast as michael manring.
