  1. no...not "crash into me", Crush...yes, the one with the really funky bassline...how does stefan get that sound in the beginning, which sorta sounds like a pop...but not quite...

    thanks

    Well I know the bass line, and I know how to play it, but I don't remeber a pop...maybe a ghost note? I'll have to give it another listen real close to see if I know what you are talking about

    ps..that bass line is sooooo much fun to play

    i read an interview with Stefan and he said he (i think this is what he said) is that he has this weird finger style right there that makes it sound like he's popping but hes not. like he pushes through the string or something like that

    later

    Basically just play a heck of a lot harder. That's how I did it, anyway. It's still fingerstyle, but you just try and get all you can out of the string, not quite hooking it under, but getting close.

    Cool bass line.
     
  5. thanks a lot guys!

    I love that bassline...Stefan's one funky Mofo!
     
  6. I agree with you, SuperDuck. But when I play, I try not to increase the volume of the A note where it most often ocurrs. Stefan's technique is also visible on "Listener Supported" on Pantala Naga Pampa.
