Crap, I use everything EXCEPT open strings. There goes the last 20 years.
They might honestly have only subscribed for the lulz, tbh.
No, no it's not. You don't get any more notes per song with altered tunings.
In all fairness to his bass playing on that performance.... they let him SING LEAD on the song.... so hells yea use a simple bass line for sure
but yea, agreed about him, he's awesome, adn can seriously play, but he did get seriously laaaaazy
LOL! If I were to go fretless, i could have as many notes as I wanted in the first position. All those quarter tones!
I'm surprised the dude didn't buy a fretless bass because he thinks he only needs to play open strings and doesn't need any frets... hmmm
It is totally possible to play nothing EXCEPT open strings on a bass, for any song in any key with no detuning.
With a 12-string bass, each string tuned to standard tuning, a world of non-fretted, difficult to control and quickly mute open string notes are to be had by anyone. Think, "Badly designed harp that no one asked for."
It could be done...
Really wish I could have seen the video before it got taken down, but then again it sounds like something that would have made my IQ drop.
Aw god dammit, he deleted that video and the one talking poopie about me because i asked why he didn't use the fretboard...
The master of the fret less bass!
That dude is lucky he never heard any Mark Sandman. Now that was a very unique and effective style of Bass playing.
Another win for the cyber-bullies.
Well, that covers B,E,A,D, & G (assuming a 5 string), which actually could work for a lot of songs. I guess if you want to play in a key other than G or Em, though, then you’d need to use a capo.
Joke's on him, I know 31ways!
That's what I initially thought as well.
I was thinking the same thing
Chug on an E!
So, who's actually watched his Metallica, Black Sabbath, and Primus videos?
The guy is a genius (not quite to the same level of commitment as the guy who claimed to be from Manchester, but very clearly wasn't - - but a genius nonetheless).
