learn the scales, chords, and nuances of playing a bass guitar first. then ask for specific techniques.

if you are talking gearwise,

a lot of bands use either Ampeg or Gallien-Krueger amps. I run a GK 1001-rb II, and it's great. Ampeg cabs are the way to go as well. I played through a couple of Ampeg 8x10s while on tour this weekend, **** was unreal.

As far as basses, I think Jazz Basses are a good option. Stingrays are nice if you can dish out the cash, but I used to play a stingray rip-off, didn't really do it for me.

Technique-wise, playing with a pick adds a lot of that treble-ish sound. Here's what I use for EQs

Bass - 6-7
Low Mids - 4-5
High Mids - 6-7
Treble - 8-9
Prescence - 6-7

turn it up a lot and distort it. hardcore is probably one of the few genres where you are supposed to hear a lot of not almost too much bass

First of all, I enjoy deathcore for it's complexity and it's the only genre heavy enough for me

I want an amp good for playing hippie tunes. I want it to be an actual amp, not a tube amp.
