: Hi! I'm new to this board. I'm just beginning to play bass and I have a few questions. I hope I don't sound too dumb, don't really know much about electric bass yet. So here goes:
: 1)What are common effects/pedals that are used with the bass? What are the good brands which are inexpensive and don't fall apart?
Well; there's a lot of effects you can use...or not!. It deppends of what you're looking for. Personally; I like Bass equalizators and chorus but only to play a bit. I preffer the sound of the clean bass. Good brands?. Maybe Danelectro; DOD or Boss but I don't know much about pedals...
: 2)What is slapping?
Slap is a technique which consists on hittin' the string with your thumb very close to the neck so you get a "peak" sound. It's combinated with a technique (Popping) which consists on plucking the string with your index and/or middle fingers.
: 3)Are there any tips/tricks I should know while I'm learning to play.
Yeah...Be patient and be shure that you like what you're doing! LOL. Learn to play bass is a task that needs a lot of time so don't give up and enjoy your playing!!
Not at all, man. We are here for this...;)
