Great stuff. Obviously, I have to amend my original reply of "no" to say I don't know what I'm talking about (except that Di Piazzi doesn't stab, either).
I saw Ravi Shankar a few weeks ago with his daughter Anoushka and have since been contemplating how to incorporate certain aspects of sitar style (as opposed to technique) into both bass and guitar. It's a great thing to expand horizons by examining how other players approach their instruments. No doubt classical and flamenco guitar are closer to bass than sitar.
Style is not the same as technique, though. I liked Christopher's breakdown of applicable/inapplicable technique.
