I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

That was good man!

Just fooling around with harmonic minor can sound cool.

Stanley Clarke does some neat harmonic things. Btw, how do you guys do artificial harmonics? Back when I played guitar (about 2 months ago, feels like years since I learned the ways of the bass) I held the pick with my middle finger and thumb and used my index finger to do the harmonic thingie. Now, I use my thumb to do the harmonic thing and I use my index finger to pick. But that feels kind of weird... anyone have alternate techniques?
I like rap, feel free to use that as an argument against me.

To m30wc0w:

Meh, I really like harp harmonics (Type of artificial harmonic). I used my fretting hand regularly by fretting a note. Then, with my plucking hand, I stretch out my thumb and lightly press it on the string. Then, while my thumb is lightly on the string I pluck, which will create a harp harmonic. Very useful technique for playing a part of the song that I posted earlier in the thread.
