    I notice from your pictures and youtube videos that you play mostly 5 strings. Are you into 6 string basses?

    Yea, I own and play 4, 5, 6 and 7 string basses. I also play fretted and fretless bass as well as keyboards and guitar.

    But my man voice is the 5 string fretted bass guitar.

    peace,

    Coming from an expert on slapping and thumping, would you say it is harder on a 6 string?

    It's not that's it's harder. I'm only ever playing 1 string at a time. But for me, the C string is too weak for fretless and thumping. But I love the C string for soloing fingerstyle.

    peace,
