This lesson deals with cleaning up your slap technique. I’ve taught slap bass to many students and the most popular problem tends to be a lack of control over muting and accuracy of the thumb.

Here I try to get around this problem by changing your perspective. You should think of muting and silence first and the notes come second to that. This is achieved by using what I consider a home position. Check it out!
