    When playing certain slap bass riffs I am getting static as my fingers come on and off the strings (grounding and un-grounding). Slap is really the only time when both hands at times are not on the bass. This occurs on both of my bass, surely some other people have this problem? I am trying to record DI, and its probably not detectable with a real amp. How can I fix this?
