1. Start slapping.
2. Turn down your mids all the way.

i do it a lot. ill be playin somethin and i forget to close my mouth... sometimes its really bad, slobber everywhere. i goes mostly over the neck, on the higher frets, and its really hard to get out from under the strings.

you musn't slap, you have to finger the strings but VERY hard. And if you have a four string, you should bring the key down. For example, if you tune the E string to B you will have super Fieldy sounds, but you won't play their tracks in usual way :p

But try to tune E to B. (down of course) It's incredible.
You can play Audioslave's "Gasoline" with Fieldys sounds

Tip:
Buy the K5, restring with only stainless steel strings when you need to restring.
Find out what amp he has, buy that.
And spend ages ****ing around with the EQ to get his tone.
Then to complete his sound you need to learn his technique, which I believe was a mix of hard slapping with his thumb and pinky.

And remember, he always says he's a drummer trapped in a bassists body, so think drums.

That's the only way you're going to sound like him I'm afraid.
Why you would want to sound like him I don't know, he has a terrible tone/technique IMO. But granted he is actually a good bassist and it works for him in KoRn.


I'm finding it so difficult to flame you for your typing. But I'll be nice.

Really, turn off your mids completely, and crank your treble until it's harsh and unpleasant like it is in Fieldy's tone. Raise that bass to your liking.

Adjust your truss rod so the neck is almost completely straight (almost, maybe half a dime's thickness of relief).

Lower the action as low as it can get without some notes being dead.

Play as hard or as soft as you want, there's no way to escape that awful clicking with a setup like that.

Oh, and get an amp without a tweeter, or a small tweeter. If the tweeter's powerful, those clicks will sound a thousand times worse and probably give you a headache. An Ampeg 810 should do the trick - no tweeter.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

Vagina's tend to be not all that great looking most of the time. It's all... flappy. Looks sloppy.

I'd have to say guy junk wins but not by much. It's like winning a beauty contest against Steve Buscemi.
