lots of harmonics. I've found that women like harmonics. Do not ask me why.

At this one show I did (in fact one of the only shows I've done) I did a solo with lots of phasing and delay. It was all natural and artificial harmonics, and one girl there told me that it was "heartwrenching". I kid you not.

bah, away with your acoustic guitars. ill go Bluto on your ass.

victor wooten stuff is great to play and all, but thats not something you can learn in short notice. im still struggling with overjoyed.

the best thing ive found, learn chords. you can make some of the prettiest chord progressions, and if your real slick, she asks "who wrote that?" you say "why, i did. i was just thinking of you and got inspired."

good luck bro

Love Thang - Stu Hamm. Cant beat it IMO. but yeah PoT is a killer - my girlfriend loves that one. she calls it the "nice one with bells in". bless her little cotton socks!

Also, try something a little off the beaten track - classical. No one ever talks about classical pieces on bass here, personally they are a favourite of mine. in particular Beethovens 5th Symphony and Bach's Sinfonia..

Ultimately, you should pick up the acoustic if you want to serenade a girl - it's much easier. Three open chords with a few hammers and you're talking wet knickers. trust me.

Yar. Classical sounds great on bass if you get it arranged right. Moonlight Sonata and Fur Elise are my favs to play.
