The member who goes by the name "?????" on this site is a poser. He does not even own a bass, much less know the difference between a palm mute and a slap. Don't take his posts seriously, he's only tryin to pretend he is bada$$ enough to play bass. He may sound like he knows his technique and bass terminology, but he only posts on this site cuz he has no friends. Keep talkbass.com a decent site and don't talk with "??????".
