: Is playing slap style on a bass hard on the intrument? It seems like it could damage a bass. I've thought about experimenting with it, but I'm reluctant to for fear of damaging the bass in some way.
Mostly you can damage your hands and possibly strings, and the fingerboard gets a lot of punishment and may wear. But it's an instrument and designed to be played, and fingerboards are planed and also replaced all the time.
