  1. Hi all!

    It's been over a year since the original first 5 Slap Bassics Lessons but I've finally continued the series :)

    As always I really hope they're of help!

    So here it is - Slap Bassics Lesson 6....

    Thank you Scott, that's just what I needed! :)

    How can you get such a beautiful slap tone? I'd like to know how you blend the pickups and if you boost or cut any frequencies on the bass and/or on the amp. Thanks again for your contribution!
     
  4. Hi & thanks :)

    Most of the time I leave my amp eq flat & turn off any 'silly' "boost", "pre-shape", "bright" buttons.

    For slap stuff I'd generally use both pickups at equal volume and boost the bass & treble a little with the on-board active eq. If you're playing a passive bass, then just boost the treble and bast slightly on the amp (not too much though - a little goes a long way!).

    What amp/bass are you using?

    Cheers,
    Scott.
     
  5. No problem - thanks :)
