uhhh.... i hope your talking about bass. its where you relax your hand and use your thumb to "slap" the string by flicking your wrist at it.

I don't think you mean slaps at all; slap is almost exclusively a bass technique, there are some who slap on guitar, but not many at all.

Where did you get this information from?

And no, Corey from Trivium is one of the guitarists; their bassist's name is Paulo.

For slapping guitar, check out Tomo Fujita. There's videos of him floating around somewhere.
