Soloing and looping using P-bass?
Hello (P-bass) player enthusiasts,
Does P-bass have the same tonal range for soloing with looping as J style bass?
what string should be used for this purpose? round nickel or flat?
Any P player?
In my experience, Pbass isn't much of a solo instrument. Some people can make it work, but I can't think of any off the top of my head.
It's a flawless instrument...for a band.
However, if you ARE going to go into it, you'll need definition, and flats aren't the way to go for that.
what kind of string do you suggest? nickel maybe?
I play a heavily modified P. I enjoy the "solo" tone I've gotten from it.
Caveat: I've replace the neck with a warmoth with jumbo stainless frets, and the bridge with a badass II.
I've taken out the tone knob altogether and go volume straight to output. I use 500k pots. I've dropped the action way low so that when I go gentle, its clear as a bell, but when I dig in I get fret noise kinda like a pick. I prefer stainless roundwounds.
My tonal range with my setup is pretty wide, but you have to make alterations in accordance with your own playing style.
Billy Sheehan solos like crazy, and when he does, its usually from his split P.
that's quite modification. thanks.
Any video you made?
By the way what loop effect do you use?
This guy does it
Yes of course you can solo with a P-bass. Youtube is full of examples.
