hey yall,, just a question on soloing,
for juicy long held notes what's good to use?
as in 3rds, 5ths, 6ths of the root note i mean,
Definitely 5ths are the fattest notes besides the root. The 4th might give u a nice happy sound sometimes mostly if the chord is major and is a transition chord. The 3rd kind of gives ur like a vocal melody type of sound, like but not good to hold them long. It mostly depends on the chord progression. I think the best way to get fat juicy sounds, is to learn the blues scale. The most important thing for a bass player is phrasing and groove.
Dont worry much about the 7ths and 6ths, they are usually for jazz and fusion music.

but seriously it really depends on what you are trying to acomplish with that note.
no sir away a papaya war is on
6ths and 7ths it is,
cheers dude

and i'm trying to accomplish juiciness :p
