  Slapping - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bassist Larry Graham is generally acknowledged as being the one who invented slapping and popping on the bass guitar while playing as a teenager with his mom who would play the piano.
The slapping technique is used to achieve a percussive "popping" bass sound, which is one of the signature sounds of funk music.
There are numerous variants of the slapping technique, which extend the basic actions by including other percussive strumming techniques, such as adding hammered notes, and repeating slap and pop patterns to effectively produce the equivalent of a drumroll on the bass guitar (see Victor Wooten).

 Slapping and Popping 2   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
To "pop" a string, place your first (index) finger of your slapping hand part way under the string (just enough to grab it), pull the string out lightly and then let it pop back against the fretboard.
When you pop, leave the tips of your fingers touching the E, A and D strings and lift just the base of your fingers off of the G string by moving your hand forward, pivoting your wrist slightly.
Practice the slap and pop for a while, keeping the metronome set to between 40 and 50.

Popping (I think that's how you spell it) is essentially taking a finger (forefinger or second generally) and snapping one of the strings (usually D or G) up off the fingerboard so that it smacks back down.
Also, pops tend to have a very LOUD harsh sound so you may want to turn the volume on your amp down a bit your first few times.
Playing several pops in a row can be difficult for some people which is why the first exercise in this lesson was nothing but pops.

On Jaco's instruction video it sounds like Jaco is popping the strings like a slap bass player does, but it looks like he is playing normal finger style.
Posted - 11/20/2003 : 10:50:12 AM In regards to the "pop" Jaco gets on his instructional video...I think part of it is that his action is fairly low on the maple P-bass neck.
When you hit the strings hard on that kind of setup they are going to immediately hit the frets above where you are playing creating a popping then dampened sound.

The band has slight influences of 311 but with a heavier funk overcoat that doesn't limit itself to a reliance on slap and pop riffs, offshoots of ska and rapcore blossom within the music which has an almost ethnic quality as mindful harmonies erect themselves with care and precision.
There's a definite tip of the hat to elements of 80's pop that isn't overly blatant, but there's also an aggressive edge in place that keeps the music from becoming sugar coated.
Bass also features a hint of reggae and funk and steps into the realm of slap and pop and plodding bubbly chord patterns familiar to the likes of The Urge or a less spastic version of the Pilfers.
