you know that mute he gets incertain songs, how does he do that?
He puts his hand on the string and that mutes them. How did you think he did it?
it sounds different on the primus cd's and solo's and stuff though...
This should be in Technique. lolz.
What is that lolz thing about? Why the z?
And do you usually laugh at the end of every sentence you say, Obsolex?
Somebodys a bit moody today...
Wait a minute... what makes his mute superer than mine? Oh, so all of a sudden your saying Les is better than me? Right? Oh, well that's fine... that's just ****ing great. You know what, you can cook your own damn supper tonight because I'm going home to mother!!!!!!!!
maybe it s because he s playing on a fretless???
He doesn't really do any thing special with it. The only reason it sounds good is because he just has some rythm with it, so it sounds cool.
what like on the song laquer head yeah? where it just clicks away, thats called left hand slap, using your fretting hand to bash against the fretboard while your slapping at the same time
just do it slow and built it up, till you get really fast, if your having problems with slapping speed you can get the same effect by using the popping hand
Sometimes I notice on his piccilo bass that it will sound a little different with his percussive muting. This could be a key factor. But there are many intracacies in Claypools technique, its best not to boter yourself with them...Things are going to sound different when he's playing on a totaly different rig than you, with a one of a kind bass.
