    is that the left hand slap part your talking about. i think in the studio version he just does a little poping thing, but in the live version it sounds alot cooler cause it left hand slap. try to get the 311 video "enlarged to show detail" (at least i think thats what its called) to see p-nut do it live. or get the 311 live album,its on there too. or if ya wanna be cheap(like me:D ) download 311- feels so good live from a file sharing program. i remember when i first learned that whole song i was so proud of myself, i thought i was the ****. but then one day i got my ass handed to me by another bass player.:D but it doesnt matter im better than him now.:D
    psi need help, when i was typing this must have pressed a wrong button. cause now when i spell something wrong and go back to fix it, it deletes the next letter in the word any body know how to fix this.(if you even know what im talking about)

    it pretty easy do do. i bet you already know how to do it but you dont know what it's called. its also kinda hard to explain, try doing a search on left hand slap im sure sombody in here can explain it to ya. if you cant find it in search just start up a new thread on it. peace;)

    a left hand slap is what is says. you take your left hand and slightly curve the fingers. then slap the all of your strings. but do not bring your hand back up or let the notes ring. the object it to get that "thnck" sound.. i use this if i'm playing something and want to change it up a bit. i'll do a left hand slap then tap a note and do a glissando or something.. but I haven't tried to learn that solo.. sorry i can't help you with that.

    ok let me try to help. instead of doing a normal left hand slap.try hitting the strings with your index,ring and middle fingers all at different times one right after another(kinda like a drum roll). thats what i do for this song anyway. sorry if you cant understand my explanation im not to good at being the teacher.good luck;)
     
  7. Les, when that happens, you need to hit the INSERT key. You've accidentally hit it and toggled from insert mode to overstrike mode.

    yea but xp has a cool new feature, when you get a new e-mail a little messege pops on the lower right hand side of the screen(by the clock). xp kicks ass its loaded with all kinds of cool features.by the way have you tried to play the live version of the p_nut solo yet.peace;)
