....socks tied round the top of the neck? I've been wondering this for ages
Usually, it's hair scrunchies, or foam under the strings behind the nut...
But it's to keep the sympathetic vibrations from getting all the strings sounding at once. You'll see it more on the dudes who do a lot of tapping.
Or, they're just dorks.
I think the real purpose is so when you swing around and hit the lead player with your neck upside his head, it doesn't hurt as much.
I've never seen a tied sock but often scrunchies for reducing sympathetic vibrations while tapping.
The more important question is: why do we see people with socks on their arms?
It's just a spare.
well where else would you put a sock on your bass? i mean dumb question really.
...or underwear on their heads?
Hahah I love you guys
I don't see that too often, but it's mostly used by tapping players.
