you know that sticcato 16th note sound in alot of 1980's hair metal bands, e.g. Motley Crue, Van Halen? When the guitar strikes a power chord and the drums n bass are just giving a steady 4/4 beat, bass playing the root note in sticcatto? What is the best technique to produce the sticcatto? I think MotCrue bass is with a pick...just he just mute each note with his right palm after each pick stroke? Or is there a fretting-hand technique as well? What if fingerstyle is used?
