Somebody please explain this more in depth to me. What exactly does he do?
There is a good video of him doing it here
what he does is he hits the strings with a very short, hard attack, but doesn't press down hard enough for the notes he is "tapping" to come out distinctively.
hope that helps, at least a little.
That reminded me alot of what Ryan Martinie does, but ryan does it like that becuase he's strings are tuned so low that he gets a thump sound from that sort of "tapping".
Whew! I'd say.
I just decided not to go out tonight. I'm going home and practicing instead.
Thanks, 'Jus -
Wow... and i thought i was good...
thats looks like its taken right from the recent DVD re-release. (copyrights Feh!) Plenty of OX viddies in that 3 DVD set, believe me.
Ohh! Is that the DVD that has a part where they isolate just Ox's track alone?
Someone was telling me about this recently - I want to see that!
No, I think that's "The Kids are Alright" DVD. There's a Bonus feature where on... Won't Get Fooled Again, I think, there's some isolation footage of just him.
But, now that you mention it, I seem to recall hearing about a DVD where there are some iso tracks of just him. Anyone?
RABBER!! He's my main inspiration for the bass. Used to be Squire, but the Ox takes it all, now.
Keep in mind Johns strings are like ON the fretboard when he's playing like that. So if you have the strings raised up a bit it will take alot more precision to hit them with the right amount of force so they will tap the frets without you tapping them hard enough play the note at where you tapped them. Not to mention there is no way you can you can play that fast like that without lowering your strings..
Oh yea and whats with them cutting off Ent's solo in that vid! What a rip off!
Holy hell. I didn't know he could play like that.
Likewise, I knew he was a monster but I wasn't aware that he was a genuine bassist.
Don't say I never did anything for you.
Oh my god, did you see that?!!!!!! Did you see that????? My mind just exploded!!!!!!!!!!!
I think my mind is just in the process of being expl...
MF'n OMG!!! John is GOD!!!! Screw that slap crap and all the rest of the junk... .Man is he fast!
2 words, Shearstown... Thank you!
