For all of those of you who wanted to know what my FBB sounds like, here are some .WAVs. http://www.people.cornell.edu/pages/pam35/fbb-fingerstyle.wav http://www.people.cornell.edu/pages/pam35/fbb-slappop.wav Each file is the same phrase repeated 5 times, one time at each of the following pickup balance knob settings, in order: -full neck -60% neck, 40% bridge -center detent -40% neck, 60% bridge -full bridge I recorded these files by running direct from the bass into the (awful-sounding) mic input on my Sound Blaster Live. No processing was used. I'm very annoyed with the distortion on the full-bridge examples in both files, but I'm not a recording engineer. I'm actually kinda proud of my technique here--this is very clean compared to some past work, despite the total lack of compression. My rhythm probably isn't the keenest, but I'm working on it.
