I really like the sound of the bassist from Tower of Power. But I just can't seem to get the sound right. It almost sounds to me as though he's muting the strings while he's plucking them; the notes sound really staccato and funky at times. Does anyone know how he accomplishes this? Is it left- or righthand muting? Maybe it's also because he's using a P-bass and I'm playing a J-bass.
