: How do you get the kind of slap noises that the guy from Korn gets on Freak on a Leash? When I slap my strings all I get is this really dead "Dkk dkk dkk" kind of sound and it doesn't sound very 'bouncy'. Anybody know? Would be really helpful cuz I can play the rest of the damn thing except for the slapping parts.
Fieldy uses Dean Markley Medium roundwounds and tunes ADGCF. He uses the Boss Bass Synth. Here is a quote from the recent BassPlayer mag on his technique. "Big two-string thumbstrokes w/multi-string pops; classical-guitar-style string brush; open hand hammering; and conventional fingerstyle" hope that helps you out.........john
