Adam Neely talks about how you can turn your electric bass sound into an upright bass sound. Well, he does admit along the way that it may be more about translating the ‘feel’ and ‘function’ of an upright bass to your electric bass.
To our ears, the tone he gets never really gets close to the tone of a double bass, but his ideas about approaching the playing technique to fill out the function of a walking double bass are worth checking out. Oh, and that use of an octave pedal is quite original. Mostly, we use that for creating a synth sound, but why not use it for this as well. Might be worth a try 🙂
