The Precision does only do one sound, but it's a good sound. You can usually get some good tonal versatility if you get a P/J. If you wanted to get that J tone, see if you can get that P routed for a bridge J pickup (as long as you don't mind modding your bass). Most of the Jazz's tone comes from the bridge pickup.
Then again, you could try and pick up a cheap secondhand Jazz.
Bro pbasses have tons of sounds. You got regular p, p with flats, p with rotosounds, p with a mute
Yeah that's about it
seriously though listen to the tone, half of it is in the fingers though i must admit.
geddy lee's tone isn't really jazz bass like somehow. Most of it is how hard he digs in, but a lot of it is in his amp
In that first video it's a P bassy kinda tone. In the second one though you can really hear the nasally tone of the Jazz bridge.
geddy lee's tone doesn't rely on the jazz bass. i'm thinking he plays one more for comfort because they are pretty much more comfortable than a p-bass.
geddy's tone is all about pulling REAL real hard on the strings with two fingers through a really hot amp that distorts easily.
if anything it sounds more like a Rickenbacker bass but those are uncomfortable as shit to play.
I like the neck on precisions better personally, but the sound of a jazz beats any precision. Geddy's tone is like a ric with more midrange punch
Sorry for the artistic filter bullshit but my guitars look damn sexy haha.
I bought an acoustic bass the other day. Spent just about all the money I have. No regrets. only hours of awesomeness.
Fender BG-31. No pictures because my phone is being weird. Got it used for 300. No nicks or missing parts or anything lol
I have an acoustic bass but I never play it
I probably should just sell it
Can anyone help with trying to tune my guitar? Im trying to tune it to EGDDBD from standard, but Im not sure how to do it.
what's the problem?
keep your bottom E string the same, tune your A string down a whole step, keep your D string the same, tune down your G string 5 semi-notes, keep your B string the same, and tune down your top E string down a whole step.
finger the third fret on the low E string and match it with the A string, play an open note on the D and match it with the G, match the high E to either of the Ds
I cant get my A string down to a G, at least my tuner isn't reading it right or something.
just tune down till it sounds good
There are a lot of odd imaged for "semi-note".
you didn't lose all your limbs buying that, right? i mean you're still typing.
Agh my heart!
I had to drill into my explorer today to move the strap button, kind of worth it in the end though. No more neck dive.
you have that epiphone exp right? cos my friend had the same problem
i should do the same to my b.c. rich but i have no tools
Yeah the 1958 in ebony, beautiful guitar. Plays amazing but that neck dive was getting to me.
wow what the fuck
I've been practicing tapping with my middle finger instead of my index and now there's a blister there
I'm disappointed in my finger
I usually tap with my middle or index finger, I find myself using my pick sometimes as well though.
I don't think I've actually done any tapping in a few years
It was one of the first techniques I wanted to figure out, it is funny now thinking of how simple it is to do but it wowed everyone when I did it.
I've been teaching myself guitar, and I've ran into this kind of shit on some tabs. How the hell am I supposed to strum this?
pluck it using your fingers
A week ago, I was in the big apple, and on my birthday/ the day after, I saw Vinny Martell of Vanilla Fudge at B.B. King's.
Well I'm back from my ranch trip.
Brought along my band and we played all our music for a good 5+ hours. Everyone there went through an ounce of weed, 5 handles of tito's vodka, and I had 12 cuban cigars there. We broke the golf cart, popped a car tire, and blasted our music at 11. Everyone danced and went nuts for the entire 5 hours.
At one point we drove the golf cart and it broke in the middle of no where, so I was drunk as fuck and had to walk to the house and drive it out in the 500+ acres to get my friends and come back.
That's the time where you learn to never drink and drive.
I hope my friends have some recordings of the night. It was a 20 minute voodoo child of shit goin down.
I was drunk as fuck and we thought it'd be a good idea to play music whilst driving around the land. We went really far out and the golf cart broke/battery died. So we pushed it for a while but we were so drunk we almost puked, so I walked back to our starting point (a house) and got the car, drove it out to where the golf car twas, picked up my friends, and drove back.
Which strings do you guys feel last longer? I like the Ernie Ball's but they lose their brightness after a day or two.
D'Addario or no strings
d'addario or ernie ball
