Hello! This is my fourth year as a bass player, and in the last years I've discovered the beautiful solo voice of the bass. I LOVE Stanley CLarke's tone, and I think he's my main influence. I actually use his plucking tecnique for solo stuff, and I must admit that I like the sound I get out of it... but I think I should improve my solo voice. What other tricks should I learn to open my bass to the great solo universe? I often try to play in double-thump, but I'm not Marcus Miller... I'm not good to do it I like slap a lot... in this period, I judge a bass from its slap sound and solo voice! In fact I was thinking about getting an Alembic bass... am I mad? Sure! Thanx to every one!
