    Can anyone out there explain to me what the term, a biscuit drop is.I think It has to do with traversing 3 octaves in a walking bass pattern,like James Jamerson did in some Motown songs.Can someone tell me how its done using say a c major or any major scale.That would be so cool to learn.He did it on a 4 string Fender P Bass.

    My Google Fu found this:

    Ah... biscuit drop? | TalkBass.com

    I've always heard it called "Bucket of Sh!t". You rake as you mute from the octave to the root. Hey, that rhymes!

    I always knew "bucket of sh!t" as "bucket of fish". Never hear of a biscuit drop until 14 seconds ago.

    And bucket of fish for some reason just made me think of this, which I came across yesterday.
