    Hey man,yesterday I chanced upon this cool riff and I was popping when I cut my finger and started bleeding.Most satisfying feeling in recent weeks.

    Two years on the guitar and no blood.One month on the bass and I'm a bloody mess.Bass rules.

    Might want to lighten your attack if you are bleeding regularly.

    the only time i've ever bled is when i was stupidly playing this slappy/poppy line while i had these huge blood blisters on my fingers from a DB gig the night before... at one pop, they popped, all over my bass. quite nasty
  4. I think the blood thing works if your in a heavy act. "I PLAY SO HARD I BLEED!!!!!!!" type deal.

    But it wouldn't work in jazz or funk or something. They's probably think you were a hemophiliac.

  5. Your technique on guitar was obviously too good. I once switched instruments with my guitarist for a few songs, and due to my crappy palm-muting technique, I scraped off a fair amount of skin on my index finger and bled all over his Strat :smug: It's a shame I did that on his guitar; I cleaned it off for him. If I'd done it on my Squier I would have just left it; it looked really cool!

    I cut my finger then played. I got blood on my pickgurd made me kinda mad.

    Then I cut my thumb and couldn't slap for like a week. That also made me mad.
