If you're slapping and need to quickly pop twice, what combination of fingers do you use?

- Index & middle finger
- Index & ring finger
- Index & pinky
- Other

I say index & ring finger because mine are roughly the same length.

well honestly it really comes down to what you are most comfortable with..
some people pop twice with one finger (oh..the innuendos i come up with...) and some people prefer it other ways..there is no right away i guess you can say

Index and middle finger for me, It makes more sense and there colser toghether. And i would get fingers in the way of other fingers.

i use index and middle just because the way i hold my hand when i slap naturally causes me to use the middle to double pop.

but it comes down to to the person and their comfort level really.

Is it possible to pop twice with one finger for really fast stuff? Like 16ths?

Errrrmmmm a epiphone Eb-1. Neck dive and fret access were the least of his worries snapping the strings all the time.

Well I double pop with my index finger, when I was learning to play Stone Cold Bush that's how I was taught to do it. Though ironically when I play slower songs I tend to alternate between index and middle fingers.

well it would take alot of work and practice for straight 16ths...and i would advise against it but technically yes...
