Thanks Greg, again. I'm no slapper ;) but there are parts of the technique I want in my tool-box. I've watched a number of videos on the topic but none until now explained the contact point of your thumb. It's details like this that make the difference. Also many other vids get you popping well before the thumb technique is properly nailed.

Good material here, recommended 👍

Great, glad you are finding the lesson useful. Sure you aren’t just a tiny bit of a slapper? 🙂

I agree, that it’s so important to nail the thumb, in the slap technique. That’s going to give the solid groove. 

The popping lesson is coming in a few week, so get practicing! 😀

      I am interested in what video course topic you would most like to take to improve your playing. 
      Also, do you think online learning is a valid way to improve your bass playing? 
      Obviously face to face lessons with a teacher is the best way to learn, but I am aware that some people do not have access to this because of location, or finances.
      Let me know what you think.
