    I've been experimenting with double-stops and chords lately on my bass. They are definately nifty to use once in a while. Some I've found pretty cool are:

    root+minor3rd
    root+major3rd
    root+4th
    root+tritonus
    root+5th

    I find triple-stops to sound a bit muddy , except when played really high up.
    Anyone have any other chords that sound cool and logical on bass?

    There was an entire thread on this very topic a couple weeks ago. It was either in Techniques or General Information. Do a search and you will find much valuable information in that thread.
