: What's the differences between bass method and bass technique?
Jeez, man, you just don't stop asking deep questions, do you? I'm no semantics masters, but I'll give it a shot anyway. Here it goes:
As far as I know, "technique" means a number of motive skills necessary to perform any given art or craft. Thus having a good slap technique would be being reasonably competent to play slap-style, which is achieved by learning really well those motor skills I've talked about.
A "method", I think, is any amount of structured academic information aimed to help you learn a given technique. Going back to same example, you'll find lots of "slap methods" which will help you to develop a decent "slap technique".
Hope this helped. Maybe some of the fine folks who contribute here (and have a lot better way with English than me)may give you other hints about the question you posted. C'mon, guys, Shengjie needs help here!!
Anyway, your post sounds like you entered a bookstore and saw lots of bass books, some which are called something like "electric bass method" and some others are called "electric bass technique", and then you got confused. If this is you, in this case both words may mean pretty much the same. They're just titles.
Buena suerte and keep those basses up front in the mix,
