Bass Chords

Discussion in 'Technique [BG]' started by Circus, Sep 21, 2003.


  1. Hey, my bands guitarist (he also plays bass in another band) introduced me to playing chords on bass, and I'm hooked, i love it. I know Ned's Atomic Dustbin uses bass chords. Does anyone know of any other bands that use chords on bass? I must find some! thnx :bassist:
     
  2. I think Jonas Hellborg used to do some chordal work, as did some Jeff Berlin pieces. As far as using chords in an ensemble, no one that I know of.
     
  3. I've heard P-nut do chords, and also Tye Zamora.
     
  4. well mr.wooten uses them for example in "you cant hold no groove"

    i think a lot of players use them, just only when they're appropriate for example cliff burton in the metallica song "call of the ktulu". (i only mention that as i was recently learning bits of it).
