Ring on Thumb while slapping

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by Strat Hater, Dec 28, 2012.


  1. I was watching this video of Scott Brown the bassist for Trooper a Canadian classic rock band. I noticed he is wearing a ring on his thumb while slapping.

    Anyone do this, I assume it is to get more attack?

    I also love the fact that he is playing a $200 Squire Jag. He usually plays Fender Jazzes which I believe are American.

    Perhaps Scott is here himself and could answer this for me.

    Here is the video

    I can't believe that thing is still around! Didn't that come out 20 or 25 years ago?

    Gerald Reese started the company in 1994. I imagine he invented it before then, so yeah, 20 years is probably right on.
