    Nice one RIP. I can really hear that with a nice, palm-muted, chugging rhythm guitar. Sort of like the middle bit in Master of Puppets: "Master! Master! Where's the dreams that I've been after!"

    Here is a little loop noodle that I came up with a little while ago.

    Edit: the last video didn't work so I chose an older one from a different source..

    Hot dang! Nice slapping! How are you getting the triplets? I get that effect using a double-pop technique but it doesn't look like you're doing that.

    Hey mate! thanks for the compliments. Its just a fast "slap,pop,slap,pop" in between the lower bass notes.

    G "slap,pop,slap,pop" Bflat "slap,pop,slap,pop" G "slap,pop,slap,pop". Its like a 12/8 time sig I think.

    Kick ass playing, extremely tight and musical. The tone is stellar too, for a moment I thought you were playing with a Ken Smith bass (with its characteristic attack transient), and I say that as a huge tone compliment.

    Thanks to you both for the compliments!

    The Warwick does all the heavy lifting though. A couple of things I noticed straight away with the Corvette $$ 5 was that it is super fast to play. The neck is thin, the strings are the perfect distance away from each other and the tone is amazing. I used to play an Ibanez SR 305 DX (which is still an amazing instrument to play for its price tag) and used a Sansamp driver to beef up the tone. I purchased the Corvette whilst still using the Sansamp and something didn't feel right with the tone. I realized pretty quickly that the stock tone out of the Corvette was amazing and that I didn't need the driver anymore so it got kicked from my board. My default tone is the pickup selector rolled 80% to the bridge pickup with the bridge switch set up and the neck switch set in the middle. If I want a little more guts, I just roll the pickup selector back to the middle. Tone levels mid. I also run my WT550 completely flat and just let the tone of the Warwick come through as clean as it can.

    Warwick Corvette fan for life here!

    You are most probably playing with bridge in parallel mode and the neck in single coil mode, which makes a lot of sense. Swamp ash probably keeps your tone beefy while maintaining a great attack because you favor bridge pickup. Good stuff right there.

    Cool riff, sounds so clear. What type of strings? Are they new? I presume it's your trusty Kiesel sixer.

    Thanks. They're DR Pure Blues. They've been on the bass for about two months, and still sound great. I really love these strings. And yes, it's my Kiesel (technically Carvin, since it was from before the name change).

    Cool. I really like your top end tone, the pops have a very appealing sound.
