Just been thinking about whether a slide would sound any good with a bass? So if any of you have tried it, let me know your experience of it, and if not, then whether you think it could work and sound good?

if I had any use for it, I'd tune DADA (or C#G#C#G#) and just mess about until something worked.

your low 2 strings are going to be muddy as all hell if you're not careful though

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

John Paul Jones of Zepplin does it all the time, even on his 8 and 12 string basses.

Roger Waters also used slides with bass on some early Pink Floyd stuff. Echoes is one example.

I've tried it with a bottle neck and a pottery slide. If you are going to go that way, flats sound better with it than rounds.

Use a bone or ceramic slide. The glass and steel slides sound too bright and tinny.
