: : : Hey, i started playing bass a few years ago, i never took a single lesson, besides from watching FLEA and VICTOR WOOTEN tear up their bass riffs. I'm 17 now, and involved in a band with my friends, i think we sound just as good if not better than everyband currently out there. Ecspecially with my new style of playing. I decided to call it FLIP PICKIN'. Although, there is no pick involved this name fits it. The way you do it is: Use your thumb to hammer on E and A, at the same time you pluck the strings with your middle and index finger an octave up on D or G. If done right you get a sweet tone, and a powerful sound.
: : : Also, if anyone knows anyone who knows some one in the music business or whatever, e-mail me with info. Me and my friends are to poor for a recording studio, so we have tons of demo tapes we recorded in our makeshift studio, and we can't seem to get a break. IF anyone can help me out e-mail me. Thanks. oh, also let me know if my style works for you.

: : I invented a new style too!!!
: : You must hit the strings with your thumb, this produces a sound very Garfunkel and you have to pull the strings with the index finger (it produces a very Simon tone!!!).
: : The give it the final touch, you must put a potato in your butt and scream "Hasta la vista....POTAT!!". and thats all.
: : I call him: "The superslapingtatoe sideral tecnique (with potato)"
: Hey... You drunk?
No, i Roberto.
