    Hey there antwan, im a huge fan of Vic and when i came close to running out of albums I found extraction, which got me hooked on Greg howe, and off his album five theres a song called plush interior, and what I think might be some awesome tapping around 1:45 in the vid, I'm slowly starting to pick it up but I cant quite emulate it, you think its tapping done on maybe a 5 or 6 string?
    Check it out, I cant find much on the bassist Kevin vechion I thinks his name

    It sounds like either slappping on a fretless, or, more likely, a chappman stick. Slow in the groove it is hard to distinguish but as the pace picks up it sounds like Tony Levin on his stick. I ran into the same problem trying to learn a line on a Jeff Golub album Tony played on.

    I found the song on youtube! I agree,...it sounds like 'thumping and plucking' done very well on a fretless with a lot of compression on it.

    Definately. Im gonna email the bassist and ask whim what he did it on if he remembers. You know where I can find a snapjack? Their website last I checked was down and required a password to get in.

    I don't think that Snapjack is around anymore. But I'm not sure.
