If you think that you might like to learn how to play basslines with your left hand by touch, and at the same time play rhythmic chords with your right hand, perhaps you might like to examine the Mobius Megatar specialty bass.
Tuned like the bass you already know, playable by touch alone, with a second set of strings to tap out harmony as you play. It is surprisingly easy to do. To show you how easy it is, we have published a free method book that teaches you how to play 'Rhythm Bass' (basslines plus chords), and this free method book is being given away right now in our free newsletter. (The same method can be used to play a 'normal' electric bass of six to eight strings, as well.)
Here's the newsletter --
If you think you'd like to know more, come visit us! On our site you will find a free subscription form if you wish to continue receiving the newsletter, as well as engineering drawings and large photographs of this special bass. You will also find a history of how two-handed tapping (touch-style) developed, along with photos of tapping instruments made by other manufacturers.
