If you wanna slap, look on youtube for some Marcus Miller stuff. That man is an amaaazing slap/pop player. See if there is any lessons from him, or just look at what he does and maybe try to imitate that.

its something that just clicks in your head when you do it
keep practicing it with the right technique and you'll get it eventually
took me the best part of a year to figure it out

can make the right noise? hit it hard because its not like you'll break a string to often

Unless there is a defect or weak spot on the string, if you're doing it right you shouldn't break a string EVER.

TS, the link Nutter gave you should give you a good idea of how to do it, it just takes time practising and if you persevere you'll get it eventually.

My problem first starting out on slapping was that I would just hit the string and leave my thumb there. You have to let your thumb bounce off the string. Maybe thats the problem...

Hit the string hard but take your thumb away again or you'll just mute it
