first post here guys after having lurked about for about 6 months, lol I just got a new laney HCM65B amp and a yamaha rbx270 bass, what do you guys think about them?? will they be suitalbe for playing rock/jazz on?? Also does anyone have recommended settings for the amp? Another thing i would appreciate would be some site giving detailed instructions on how to slap, when i try, i end up hitting at least two strings with my thumb..............anyone out there know of a good tutorial???
