Learning to Slap – Progress Report

I’ve been slapping away for about a week now and boy am I frustrated! I’m doing okay with the E and A strings and after a week the D is finally starting to get there but the G is killing me. I can’t seem to get much tone out of the G at all, that is when I actually manage to hit it. So yeah, my accuracy sucks too. So many bass players make slapping look so easy, but I can attest that it is an acquired skill that can take a lot of time to master properly. I have not even thought about moving on to popping as that my slapping is so bad. Looks like this ones going to take me a bit longer than I had envisioned. Time to hunker down and focus. Wish me luck.
