    Does Bootsy actually play slap bass?

    I know he percusses a lot. But i've only ever seen him play fingerstyle.

    TBH most of what i've heard him play has been recent, such as his stuff with Laswell (who doesn't like slap iirc).

  3. Usually not slap, just distortion to the max.

    Yeah, he seems more interested in the big fuzzy sustain.

    Bootsy can do whatever he wants to do. Sometimes I think he's just playing around with us being careful not to hurt us with too much Monster funk. He's a master at what he does for sure.
