    In the song Godzilla (I think thats what its called lol) by the Blue Oyster Cult, what does he do in the bridge (around 2:00) that gives it that sound. I cant really explain it. Its not slapped but its not really clean. Sorry, im so new to bass.

  6. Dave studied hard, he practiced constantly, mastered the technique and went on to become the bass player for Blue Oyster Cult.
