Do you practicing with a metronome? I think I might know the answer, but I'm not sure. Also, tell me more about this grappling hook technique.
sometimes i do! the demos in this video are just random flashy demonstrations..not like my usual playing its just to show the technique. and grappling hook is just a way to stablize your neck to keep it perfectly still while tapping for a while or if you wanna move around a lot. eddie van halen does it on his guitar..(i hardly use it at all anymore) you just latch onto your neck with your pinky and tap with the other fingers.
So youre just holding the neck up with your pinky and tapping with the other fingers?
yup! its flashy enough for a crowd to look at you like youre an alien and cheer real loud too haha but i like it when my instruments moving around cause im running aroudn the stage and need it to stay put or if i wanna zero in and really focus..its like BAM! now my hands stuck to that part of the neck where it needs to be and it cant go anywhere til i unlatch the hook ..good for hard parts
Here, i tried your canon then i tried the grappling hook at the end. did i do it right? be honest, i can take it.
awesome! looks good to me!
Sick! I'm going to straight own people at open mic night.
i wish i saw more solo bassists at open mics..or anywhere haha
Come with me. Dual Grappling Hooks will just stupefy the competition.
haha thatd just be funny! but like i said i never really use it anymore its just a possibility of something to do really
did you come across any better techniques since you gave this one up?
nothing wrong with the others in the video i do
nah man, i mean flashy stuff. stage presence stuff.
i dont care as much about that these days..im a lot more mature since the speed all the time days
hmm. I'll keep that in mind. thanks for the help though!
thanks for the sarcasm though for however long youve been talking here but you didnt need help..dunno why you had to come try and make a dick out of me but im too humble for that so nice try!
..can this thread be deleted pls? nothing to be gained here imo
