Well, in anticipation of getting a guitar, I started learning picking techniques and applying them to bass. However, I realized that I could easily pull a post-thrash type rhythm "guitar" sound (think Meshuggah or current Aghora) with proper palm muting and the way I have the bass tuned, E-C, and hopefully will record some new samples some songs I'd come up with previously that never quite saw the light of day. That said, is there anything well, more articulate than the Big Muff? It's the common issues every g***arist seems to have with the Muff, but is there something like the Boss Metal Zone that would help? Dumb question, but please have patience with my n00b head. Thanks! Also, I searched but didn't come up with any specific answer to this question.
