I love the sound of slap bass and want to get something like that out of an electric ukulele, specifically a Risa Solid.
I tried techniques from slap bass tutorials and can't get much sound out.
Is it impossible for a human hand to get slap sound out of an electric uke? My theory is that the strings are too close to the fretboard to get much of a percussive sound. On the other hand, hammer ons work, and I thought the string physics would be similar for hammer ons and slaps. Am I just doing it wrong?
