We’ve seen acoustic bass jams, and we’ve seen piccolo bass jams, but never the combination of the two.
Here, bassist Jim Bennett shows off his acoustic Ibanez bass, tuned D A D G, with a hint of Jeff Schmidt and Michael Manring.
Jim describes his technique:
“It’s kinda like an open hammer pluck, but instead of plucking, you do an upstroke with your index finger, more like strumming a guitar. This might be similar to flamenco techniques? The pattern is roughly: rh slap, lh slap, rh slap, rh upstroke. (rh means right-hand, lh means left-hand).”
