    hold your bass up to your face and shout "BOMB!!!" at the pickups and it'll come through your speakers

    Billy Sheehan used to do it with Steve Vai

    should be in technique btw

    :D :smug: :eyebrow: :cool: :spit:

  7. I think yelling the word BOMB(!) in a crowded club will be a room clearing experience.
