Hey Bogdan,

Thought I'd record some slap! I love the style and haven't touched the bass in some months so I could do with tightening up smile.gif



Hope you like it - will try some of your lessons soon.

What a cool groove - very Victor Wooten like! I see that you have cool double thumping technique. Shall we see more of bass videos from you, maybe a REC take? When slapping I would recommend trying to do it with even more force and tightly with the drums/metronome for the best effect.

p.s. I gotta get a mechanical metronome - it looks damn cool! smile.gif

Which bass is that? Washburn?

Yeah - my fingers are all weak and feeble from practicing guitar instead of bass!
My bass is a strange one, it is an old Yamaha RBX that has had the paint stripped of and then been stained (badly.). I also swapped the pickups out for an emg set with the 18volt mod and the bridge is a BadAss 2 bridge. All in all it has been butchered over the years but I cant find another bass that plays anything like it smile.gif - and I have tried all sorts...
I was thinking about getting one of those fodera pre-amps to fatten out the sound a bit when I can afford it.

I will take a picture of it and put it here when I get a chance...
