Hey peoples, I've recently taken a liking to the Red Hot Chili Peppers song Don't Forget Me from the By the Way album, however, when I went to play it I had a few problems with the introduction bit. After you play the double note/chordy thing, how do you then make the scratchy noise sound good? (I know my technical terms aren't quite up to scratch, but bear with me). I play it with a pick, of course, and when I mute the G and D strings and strum, it sounds wrong, sort of like it does when you play the little bits if string up near the tuning pegs. It's a bit hard to describe, sorry, but I guess what I'm trying to say is how do you make it sound more percussive? If any of you Talkbassers play it, how much pressure do you put on the strings when you mute them, to make it sound the best? Thanks for any help, and sorry what I'm saying is not very clear. Please tell me the proper names for the things described above, so as I can not sound like an idiot next time.
