I usually associate the art of popping/slapping with electric bass guitars,
and always kinda thought that those looked and soundd killer

well yesterday I saw this guy slapping and popping like mutha on his anderson drop top classic, and began searching the website for a lesson or instruction (as I have never done it before... I kinda need the basics)
what I found, and all I found, though, are bass lessons. Can anybody direct me to any instructional source or site where I can learn this awesomeness that is slapping and popping??

thanks in advance

Watch the bass ones. It would probably be the same technique anyways.

Search slap guitar on Google. You'll find some stuff yo


EDIT: It looks similar to chicken picking to me so maybe look up videos of that technique as well. That might get you on your way.

I started off my musical life as a bass player.
Its the same technique, just tightened up since guitar strings are smaller and closer together.

he has an 8 string. those strings are much more slappable than a bog standard 6.

also TS, up the gauge on your strings a lil. thatll make them sound easier.

It's not the same technique as bass. It's slightly different. There's a book out, the 333 Book, by Mike Ihde (my teacher at Berklee). He has a very good technique, pick up the book. Otherwise check out Tomo Fujita, and study his style.
