I know that there is some real gold on this topic out there. The only one that comes to mind for me is; One time me and my band were playing at a venue in downtown Orlando. We are doing a mic check and the soundguy tells me to play. So i play a few licks and then i go into a slap groove. With a deeply confused look on his face he tells me "Play how your gonna be playin it. Either Slap bass or not". In a really doochie tone. So I proceed to tell him that there are songs that i play slap bass, and there are songs where i play with jus my fingers. There are songs where i do both. Well this guy couldnt comprehend that and consequentially turned me down on the house PA. Which didnt matter at all, I had my 320 watt 4x12 Hartke Cabinet. I Had the Volume at an elegantly Present level with plenty of headroom to spare. Gotta love sound guys! Never had the guts to actually get up there and do it.
