chording a 5 string?

Discussion in 'Technique [BG]' started by midnight, Apr 18, 2001.

  1. Subject line sums it up: Is it unusual to want to chord my 5 string (Low B) bass? I know nothing about this technique except that it intrigues me. If you are into chording, or know of a site that is a good resource for technique and good chords, please let me know!

    The lastest issue of Bass Player has a story about that, don't know how involved it is though.
