When are all the sheep and copy cats (Larry Graham's slap style)going to stop playing bongos on their basses? Is it because they can't learn the more melodic two finger classic approach? Slap style reduces ones ability to develop a more harmonic, distinct and personal sound. And furthermore, it is no longer hip.Having developed my musical career in the bay area in the 70's, I could never rip off one of my peers right under his nose,(Larry) nor would I develop another photographers negatives and sell them as my own.So please, young bassists of tomorrow, don't get sucked in. Find your own.
