Hi, my name is Dalton, and today we’re going
to learn how to pop and slap and get that funky sound we like to get out of our bass.
The first thing is you got to get your thumb loose, and then you just slap it, slap it
like you’re mad at it. That gives you a slapping sound, and you can do that to any
string. To get it’s counterpart, the plucking sound which people call the pop, you take
your finger just like you’re playing regular, but you kind of pull it up hard. It kind of
gives you a fierce popping sound. So when you mix the two, you get kind of a popping
slapping noise. When you mix this with other chords, and other notes, you can do something
cool like this.
