good idea agreed, instead of using a EQ pedal or scewing with the guitar knobs in the middle of a set, if you watch enought of the profesionals alot of them continuously mess with there set up in the middle of playing

True. I tried some flat wounds on a guitar once. Weirdest feeling ever...it was like playing on noodles.

everyone has to try it HA, i liked them for a month then moved on because of the music i was playing at that time. you have to remember bass guitar, i think the Fat Wounds where wayyyyyy smaller then super slinkys i had before. i was playing the same notes but it sounded way higher on the scale, dident suite my music at all ( they where fun to screw around with new sounds)

Well since the topic of strings has come up, what are your favorites everyone? For bass, I love GHS Bass Boomers (Medium Light or Medium depending on what music I'm playing), and for guitar, either Ernie Ball super slinky 9's or D'Addario 9's.

I've used D'Addarios before on my acoustics...honestly don't remember what I used on my last string changes on mine, but I know D'Addario always makes quality so you can't go wrong...

I recently tried a guitar that was strung with D'Addario .10's. Took a little time to get used to but the tone was noticeably "beefier." I went out the next day and bought a couple sets of the same gauge. You would never imagine that upping the string gauge (and other simple things, such as just fiddling around with the pickup height) would improve your tone so much.

Oh yea, setting the action and pickup height is key to your sound. For my electrics, I try to get my action set as low as physically possible...makes soloing, hammers, etc. much easier.

Even though it's six-stringed, still one of my favorite bass riffs of all time...

Glad to hear that was to your liking. The fact that there's a little more to them seems to make for cleaner picking too.

I'd be up for a jam too, if anyone will have me!
