So I've been on a gigantic Feraud binge and no matter how I try, I cannot seem to emulate his phrasing and general sound. The really fast runs I can do (technique wise) but they never end up sounding like HIS very fast runs. I've come to conclude that the use of Symmetrical Diminished scales and all around chromaticism helps, but he straddles this line between almost completely atonal and beautiful melodicism that is well...stupefying. I'm not trying to clone the guy, I just want to be able to evoke his style at will and I've found it much harder than other bassists. I've been practicing some octatonic stuff with a metronome, trying to bring up to his (blinding) tempo and attempting to transcribe phrases of his from Youtube. Anyone have any other tips?
