Ive been meaning to do this for a while, as there seems to be some sort of unwritten law on TB, accepted by quite a few people, that a Rick is not a bass that can be slapped. On the other hand there are a few of us who actually like slapping on our Ricks quite a bit! So, heres a clip of . wait for it... the Rick slap tone! Sorry for the quality (my engineering skills and home setup are both pretty basic) and the less than disciplined playing. I just hit Record and went for it. The bass was set full volume and tone both pickups, strings are about six weeks old, probably need a new set on there about now. I know the tone is pretty different to more conventionally accepted slap machines like a Ray or a Jazz (I enjoy playing both of these), but it has a character all of its own, as youd expect with a Rick, and I quite like it. I just wanted to show that, yes, slapping on a Rick is not a physical impossibility or (I hope youll agree) totally unacceptable. What do you think?
