    you think it would work.
    i wrote this pretty fast slap/pop song on bass.
    and im thinking of combining it with power chords to make what i like to call punkfunk.
    and if my band records it ill post it and see what you think of it.
  2. Play what feels right. You can make anything work, after all. this is music. Korn have a record label. :p

    Anything can happen.

    Personally i think it's silly somoene needs to ask this kind of question...

    i don't think just because you make a punky line with slap that you should call it punkfunk :rolleyes:. that is just retarded.
    whatever you make for your type of music, are basslines ;) . sorry, no pun intended.

    Isn't this kinda what Flea did in the earlier RHCP records?

    Steve Khan had a tune back in the '70s called "Some Punk Funk".
    It was not very punk, though, IMO.

    Punk is supposed to be played with an attitude of "***"...I don't see why your slap/pop bassline wouldn't work.
  6. The bassist of TSOL uses a fretless almost all of the time.

    It may be off topic, but it's still kind of neat.

    yeah man. they were pretty good live, i saw them a few years ago. fretless sounds great ;).
    it's all music in the end, i don't see why anything wouldn't work. almost anything :p.
  8. I encorperate it all the time with my band, who is somewhat punk rock.

    It works wonderfully. Sometimes even better then playing with my fingers.
