    This is from the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah...what effect is this? or is it even an effect? I know, I asked a question like this before, and I'm new to bass playing and I want to get an effect, and I'm trying to learn what they sound like. Thanks!

    Its only 100k, it won't take that long to download at all. Its a mp3 file.
  2. That, my friend, is what we call a good combination of a pick-player with a low-action Fender and a poorly set-up amplifier.

  3. T, I agree.

    You must either be an ******* or a genius to sound like that. There's a very thin line there! :D
  4. To help use decide between ******* or genius, we must look at the catalog of recordings by the bass player since then. Using this gauge one must conclude the former.
