Would this be considered getting a "bright" tone? This is the sound my band likes me to pull off for our music - my '97 Ibby pulls it off very well , but I'm not sure a bass is -supposed- to pull off "piano tone!". Or is this a more common thing than I realize? You'll have to forgive the question. I'm in a pretty secluded area and there are very, very few bassists to talk with about this stuff and I've only recently been trying to get into the more "technical" terminology vs. just playing the danged thing.
