  2. Tune your EADG tuning down all the way to ADGC without changing strings and slap your strings.

    hm yer sounds about rite, he uses a custom bass though. An Ibanez K5 which most likely would have neck-thru body to give it more sustain and such for the sound. Also He uses Mesa Boogie amps which wouold also contribute.

    Ha!! :D
  5. did this thread REALLY need to be posted in two separate forums?

    But anyway, loose floppy strings, plenty of presence, turn your tone nob up full as well as your treble, your mids down and beat the SH*t out of your strings.
  6. I'd starting be some with English lessons. ;)

    then again, if "Korn" isn't spelled correctly, why bother, right? ;)
