I can hear it cause the sound on my computers broke but your slapping does looks sloppy. straighten up your thumb. you wont be able to slap adg strings like that.

better than most beginers but sloppy im no expert but my suggestion stay away for a while then comeback when you know good theory so around 6 months and you will see doors open

straighten that thumb, dude. and your right hand is walking kinda stuttery at the beginning. walk the fingers. walk. and keep that fretting down. soon, you'll be hitting strings like the Jaco himself, padawan.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

And as well dont focus on learning all the songs make sure your timing and rythm are good. then start workink on you slap. It ties in alot with th drums, when you slap quite often there will be a bass drum beat.

thanks for everyone's posts ... it is only my first day on bass so i knew it wudnt be tht amazin


If I can find it I made a vid of myself playing on the third day.
I was doing some strange pentatonic walking and I had no idea how.
It's very humbling to watch it now.

You need to learn how to finger pick before you should even think about slap, the finger style sounded weak.
