its the same as slide guitar, mute the strings behind the slide, but its especially important to mute notes before you play the next one, if you dont, most of the time it sounds like shit.

Slide bass sounds awesome if done well and eq'd so it's not muddy

sorry to ask a question in ur thread but i was wonderin if bass requires a specific slide, or can we use whichever one we like?

when i play i use a metal slide, apparently it offers more attack (i look for this) and the string would wear a glass one out quite easily, so metal is the way to go IMO

but by all means experiment

PM me with your e-mail address and i can send you the song with the lapsteel bass, or if you wanna do your own research it's a song called Betterman by the John Butler Trio, you want the original studio version off the album Three
