Hello all, im looking for any suggestions on pluck/slap technique. I am starting to get the hang of the technique just by teaching myself and have copied several basslines that use this style. However, i have never taken any lessons just attempted to imitate players i hear and see play. But still, i will go to the music shop and there will be a few guys there every once and a while who compine slap and pluck, throw in all kinds of weird harmonics, muted notes, and go realllly fast (using lots of hammer ons and pulloffs i think with slap) and it just sounds realy impressive. Does anyone have any tips on this kind of technique using the thumb to slap and fingers to pluck? I can improvise well using normal finger style but not nearly as well using this new technique... i just cant seem to get all the notes in i want with slap. But it sounds just awesome and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated....
ALSO, on my search for the perfect amp... Any reviews of the SWR Silverado special? Im looking at a used one n the web, and its not the current 'silverado special' which runs for 850 new or so with 2x10s, but an older model with 4x8s. It seems like great deal and ive heard swr are the best, any reviews on this particular model? Would i be MUCh better off with this than, say, a peavey tnt or a 2x10 combo? Well this is getting long thanks everybody, and peace --- chris
