: Sounds like I hurt your feelings....just telling it like it is. No studio musician ever was called for "slapping" and yes, it's true -- they don't slap in LA....if you want to slap, fine with me.
actually, I was just pointing out that it works both ways, pick user freak if anyone tells them that using a pick sounds terrible and then launch into a tirade about how using a pick is a valide technique etc.. I love to make a big deal out of things when the tables are turned. for the record, I think every technique, short of playing with one's butt, is a good technique and a well rounded bassist can use them all. That makes you more valuable, not less. I was also, I must admit, mocking the importance placed by your statement on what's in fashion in LA. I apologize for that rude statement. Don't worry, my feelings are intact.
