Just wondering 'cus I'm bored, also, who here uses the double thumbing technique?
Well, I do, and I do the double thumb too.
i prefer to play finger style but sometimes i slap, i prefer the double thump method if i am going to do it, but some times i just spank it
2 thirds finger, 1 third slap.
I don't use the double thumb technique ... but I would like to !
(dam', I have to find a teacher able of doing this !)
I've recently started slapping, like two weeks ago, and whats double thumb???usually finger, but the thumb is really fun i've discovered
I slap my bass silly when I'm playin with myself. I slap around 1% of the time in all my playing situations. Nothing I ever play calls for it - but eeez fun.
I'm with Joe, when I'm sitting at home, I'll spend hours working on slap stuff...but on gigs I almost never put thumb to string (unless it's to thumb mute). On gigs, my poor fretted almost never leaves the guitar stand, I think it gets lonely . Spend a good deal of my time messing with double thumbing too, and even mixing double thumbing with double plucking, lets ya get those real fast 16ths or even 32nds! Not useful for any "real" playing situations, but fun on it's own .
I love to slap, but I don't do it all the time. When playing I'll use a lot of finger funk, but only slap some basic lines. If I'm in a solo though, I may go nuts. It's fun.
I slap on occassion just to mix things up.
But 99.99 % is finger stuff.
do a search on it, bassicly using your thumb like a pick, downward thump and then a upward thump
