Slap

I suck at it, I gut a much quieter sound when I slap ten when I use my fingers. Does anyone have advice or know of any free videos to help me?

whereabouts are you playing on the string, as in nearer the neck or the bridge?

what bass are you using? does it have more than one pickup? when i'm slapping, i'll have the balance slightly towards the bridge and play between the neck pickup and the neck.
