    I lay down what I think are nice clean takes, and when I play it back it's all muted fart noises.
    Learn slap dude. I did. I fucking love it. I don't give a fuck if it makes my music have a baggy-jeans dreadlocked white kid feel, it makes shit groove so hard and is really satisfying when you pull it off!

    Nice!

    When do you post a "NBPD" in which you flew Matt in to track a record? It's the next logical step .

    This ^^.

    Also, fingerstyle. (Not that I'm a snob. Love lots of pick players.) I love the connection to the instrument, and the sound. I've never managed to integrate my third finger like Harris/Sheehan, but two already get so much done.

    @Matt: Have you been able to get the double-thump/bing thing going? That still eludes me.

    Harris only uses two, not three... he's just a madman.

    I like being able to use both fingers and pick... fingers to channel my inner Geezer/Harris and pick for my inner Newsted. Keep the action low - a little fret buzz adds the growl you hear on any heavy record. And get some decent stainless strings on it, the oem stock strings probably sound like dogshit.

    I haven't moved into anything that advanced, no. Just fairly standard slap, however I've got quite good at it to the point where I've got a few slap lines in odd time signatures that have become second nature to me now.

    I think I've always been very rhythmic in my approach to music, it's why all my music is so centered around the "groove" of it more than anything else. I originally wanted to play drums but once I discovered they were too loud I moved onto guitar So playing slap bass kind of satiates my desire for rhythm as well as notey notey stuff, because it's such a percussive exercise.

    I can't play fast on this thing without a pick, and with a pick it just sounds like fast pick noise.

    Thus, groovy basslines it is!
