Thanks Stein but I wonder where you've lived for the last 20 years. In Norway Question Never heard of a technique for the electric bass called "slap" Question

I found this on the web. Same bass. A Guild B-301
A friend of mine sold Guild guitars back in the late 70s.

Very nice tune, and the bass sounds good too.

now you talk.....I tried playing my master keyboard with my right hand while playing root notes with my left hand on a small pad controller. This way, I think, I was able to get more percussive rhythmic patterns but, of course, without a nice bass sound provided by my Roland JV2080 this tecnique would be much less effective Exclamation
