Does anyone know how to get that 60's surfer song effect to work on a bass?
That would be the tremolo on the bridge of a guiter, not an effect either really... So off to technique.
Not so fast bigfeet, maybe he means that tremolo effect a la Twin Peaks etc. not the guitar tremolo (which is a vibrato in reality).
yep, tremolo = rapid change in volume
vibrato = change in pitch
back to effects!
I swore that was a guitarist moving a tremolo arm.
Well off to ask my dad what they used in the sixties...
I mpretty sure they used both.
Could you be more specific?
I hope I am not way off here, but when I play Surf on guitar it is all about Reverb, and maybe some delay, and a little vibrato at times. Duane Eddy would even go as far as to put his amp in a grain cilo for recordings. Talk about reverb! As for bass? Maybe some tape echo? I hope this helps.
