Slap bass
Am I just crap or is slapping really hard? I can do it on the E string but its more difficult on other strings it hardly registers. Even the exercise is very difficult and there is no hope in hell me mastering the RHCP song on bass anytime soon!

it takes a little bit of practise and it also depends on the Bass you're using, I tried doing Slap on the Hofner Violin Bass and it was a no go. If you've got something like a P-Bass it should be easier. Also don't give up...just keep trying and you'll eventually get it :)

Slap bass is one of the harder techniques to get down. It does take a good bit of practice, so hang in there and keep working at it. Don't get discouraged, when you least expect good things happen in this journey we call music.

pay more attention to the sound you want would be better advice...

Still trying to do a proper slap technique, but I'll get there eventually

Trust me dude, it's my fourth year as a bassist and it took me a while to learn the basics (still a challenge for me from time to time). I also think that rocksmith does not teach it right.

yeah as good as the videos are, it just doesn't do it quite right for slapping
