In Reply to: how do you play slap bass and what pick-ups and strings are best for it?????? posted by Tim on June 28, 2000 at 16:01:40:
Hey, there's a bit to playing slap bass and to the gear that is best for it. A lot more than should be posted on a message board, because it would be huge. I can recomend light gauge strings, but as far as pickups go, then I can't really recomend anything. I love the pickups on my bass, they sound really full, while still having the highend that slappers crave. I play an Ibanez SR406 and it's equiped with the factory DX6's. As far as technique, I can e-mail you, or if people want a tutorial on slap, I could make a small page on the different aspects of the technique and and variations of it. Well, I hope I was some help, and e-mail me if you want me to give you info on technique, that can go out to anyone really, not just Tim.
Keep on Thumpin,
