    Hi Mark! I am loving your lessons. I’m just starting out in slap playing. I’m not getting any tone when I slap. The open E string sounds ok. But when I fret notes, they all sound the same. What am I doing wrong? Thanks so much!

    Hi Mark sir,
    I have a five string bass guitar and I find it very tough to play slap bass on it.I tried playing but my hand position is giving a problem and also the low ‘B’ string. Can you please help me that.
    Thank you
