    I was wondering how i could get a sound like in the intro of this song?

    I have a p bass and a basic rumble amp. I was think about getting flatwound medium gauge would this effect much? I have the stock strings still on.

    Flatwounds on your P-bass would get you almost there

    Flats should do the trick.

    Also play with a pick and it sounds like he uses a bit of foam under the strings too (against the bridge)
