Right on time!

This thread is all about a picking technique, speed with fingers, this is based on the song 'Right On time' by 'The Red Hot Chili Peppers' ( i know its not metal but i need help on this one, and this is technique) if u have the album californication, then u might know it, or you could just download it and listen to the 2nd bass riff, the tab is at this address


http://www.basstabarchive.com/cgi-b...ht_on_time.btab

copy and paste into address bar, please check it out, thanks

listen to the song and u will hear the speed, i need tips on how to get the speed, or any techniques on how to pick it, using 3 fingers or so and what fingers to use where.


Thanks

hm, I can play about all the songs from that album, It's been a while though since I've played this one.

I'll get back to you on this thread, I think I can tell you how to work it out.

tho i dont play bass that much, i do play classical guitar and i can help

you have this, i = index, m = middle, a = ring

G|------------------------------9-9----9-9--------------------------11-11-----11-11--| (x4)
D|-----11-11---11-11--------------------------9-9----9-9--------------------|
A|- -----------------------7-7----7-7---------------------------9-9------9-9-------|
E|--9-9-----9-9-----------------------------7-7----7-7-----------------------|


its hard to fit the fingering on there, so match it up yourself

i m a m i m a m i m a m i m a m etc..

so basically, your i and the m plays the lowest string, then when you go up, your a is already close to the third string, so play a and m on that. so on and so forth. i hope this is easy to undertsand

you could do all that, or you could just go the easy way out and use a pick, like mr. jason i-can't-play-for-shit-but-i-was-picked-to-take-cliff-burtons-spot newsted does.

sometimes, when its speed where your playing notes on 1 string, then quickly going to another string, its just easier to use your fingers.

I think I heard somewhere that metallica wouldn't let him outplay Cliff so he was forced to play shitty (and that's one of the reasons he quit). But who cares about metallica anyway. I don't mind him on Flotsam and Jetsam though.

So Jason Newstead was better than he really was. He never did many crazy bass lines. Kind of crazy on one track on CD2 of Garage Inc. Crash Course In Brain Surgery .. just a scale ... Go Bill. Thanks Weege... heh
