Guitarpro sounds interesting too. I’ve never learned notes, but I’d really like to! Feel like an illiterate sometimes. :blush:
My cousin Kenneth (great drummer) once asked Trevor Dunn (Fantômas, Mr. Bungle etc.) what the most advanced bass line he’d ever played was. He started giggling, grabbed a napkin, and started writing down the notes. My cousin, a little embarrassed, had to admit he had no clue what it said, whereby Mr. Dunn replied: “Hah! Hummers! They just hum the melodies and somebody else has to write it down for them”. 😛

Second that! I thought of Valle of Mad Sin + The Berlin Three too, he’s a great player. Kim Nekroman would be great too. I’m interested in details about their playing, like if they slap with their thumb or palm when doing quick double slaps, what fingers they pull with etc. I sent Valle a couple of questions about his technique on myspace recently, hoping I get an answer :cheer:
Thanks mate B)
I have to join the choir and praise your YouTube vids, especially the one about the drag triplet.
Great perspective and very clear explanation.
Thanks a lot for sharing 🙂
Hello there mate 🙂
Hola Amigo B)
Hi there, and welcome. Just joined myself 🙂
After extensive research I bought a set of Silver Slaps to replace the factory strings. I found the gauge a bit intimidating at first, these are big fat strings compared to steel, but I quickly became adjusted to them. Very playable – both slap and pizz, and the sound is nice and warm.
Then after hearing Djordje’s bass on Havana Whispers’ Flammable album, I wanted to change to steel, and bought a set of Thomastik Superflexible Orchestra (I figured Solo’s would be too thin). I had them on for 3 days, and switched right back to my Silver Slaps and told myself I’d never change them again :laugh:
But I must admit I’m curious about these Psycho Slaps rumors. What are they like compared to the Silver Slaps, in terms of gauge, tension, sound and looks?
@inferno Ah, the Norwegian metal scene! With you now, and totally agree B)
Tromsø is beatiful. I’ve been there once, a summer many years ago. Very special feeling to watch the sun barely touch the horizon at night and then rise again, like the longest day ever. But I guess it’s probably like that where you’re from too?
@Metalstorm Thanks dude :woohoo:
Hey, that’s great :cheer: Where in Norway is your Dad from?
I haven’t really been to Sweden, except when travelling through by train to get to the Roskilde Festival in Denmark ages ago. But I’m planning on going there (in a couple of years time) once I get the money to buy myself a Slap King 😆
The music scene in Norway is OK I guess, but there isn’t any real psychobilly around as far as I know. Not much slap bass going on either. What’s it like in Sweden?
