Don't have one.
When a bass player starts slapping I immediately turn him off. Cannot tolerate that ugly noise. Sure interrupts bass review videos no end.
Of the most well known slap players, my favs are Miller, Wooten, and Claypool.
Of lesser known players one doesn't immediately think of as slap players Ryan Martinie and Nick Schendzielos are my favs.
None, its a repulsive sound that is not bass and would never have inspired playing bass guitar.
Not trying to be negative, just trying to convey that not every bass player likes this style.
This video was created by a TalkBass member whose screen name I can't remember at the moment (sorry!) (I believe he's in Ireland, IIRC). I'm going to post it here because it deserves to be seen by more people. It's not speed-demon slap, it's just tasteful slap.
“Not trying to be negative” yet “it’s a repulsive sound that is not bass”...
Dude I don’t think you could be MORE negative. How is it “not bass”?
Am I the onyl one here to whom this sounds like computer game 'music'?
There you are
That may not be Bootsy....that might be Cordell Mosson (it sounds like Boogie playing through Bootsy's rig lol)
I never said he didnt slap, i just said he didnt slap that much lol...you prolly had to dig a little to find this....slap was never Bootsy's forte compared to folks listed in this thread...........'Rag Popping' is another song he does slap on and theres a few others here and there but compared to his body of work, Bootsy didnt really thump a lot
I know you didn't. It's just that on cuts like Undisco Kidd and Cholly (Funk Getting Ready To Roll) Bootsy was in the studio cutting while Boogie played it live. They had good synergy. The envelope follower and other effects were used more by Collins than Mosson.
I’m going to guess that slap has inspired a great many people to pick up electric bass - possibly more so than regular old finger plucking has.
I wouldn't bet my favourite bass on that...............
