Look at this

Maybe its not the most insane example of this but this was the only one I can find, the thing is, i cant do it. How do you do it? I'd love to practice this technique i just have no idea how to do it. I can slap pretty well right now if I do say so myself, i can tackle some very complicated and quick riffs, but i cant do this, is there a certain technique or way you pop?

Oh and the videos a pimp too, but id really like to know how to do this!!

to slap, you basically whack the corner of your thumb off the string, to pop, just kind of pull up the string

i find it helps to be able to pop with your three fingers, instead of only two, just for convienence purposes, but the begining of that video is just alot of hammer-ons and pull-offs. not that it isnt good, because i shure as hell couldnt do it, but, if u really tried, you could just look at his hand motions and study them, because hes good and has good technique.

Oh I know how to pop and slap, slap and pop, whatever you want to call it. .

But how the hell do you pop that fast, it sounds like hes popping a bunch of times at once.
