im am gonna go through step by step on how to slap (wank) a bass and the pop

Step 1: Materials

Get Matireals
-at least half a year of playing bass depending on how often you practice, proper technique is very hard to learn
I have a habit of pointing my thumb up, is this a good or bad technique?
as a rule of thumb, I dont really think it matters how you pop. just so long as its comfortable with you, it sounds good, and you can do it fast :-)
Now... How to make a good Slap riff: Use plenty of octaves, hammer/pulloffs, and use fifth intervals. Mix it all up, and experiment with different fifths ( E and A, for example).
thank you so very much. i didnt even read the instructable, but YOU have helped me alot!

Thanks! I've finally got slapping down because of you! Great Instructable!

My thumb doesn't bend back. At all. You'd have to snap it to make it bend... Am I destined never to play slap bass, or will i just have to angle my hand differently? ...
my thmb doesn't be much and I got it. Just move your knuckle (second one from top) back as far as it'll go. That's at least how I do it.
