BTW, I saw Vic Wooten in concert once, that guy can play lead bass. His brother Teacherman played guitar. Both Vic & Teacherman were playing with both hands on the neck, lots of double handed hammer ons & offs (that was before I had ever heard of hammer ons). I finally understood what they were doing when I came across Nick Chapman's stick.

Come to think of it, has anyone slid on stick?

Is slid the correct past tense of the verb to slide?

Iszat so? I'm gonna have to borrow my coworker's bass and give it a try.

I know I could learn to bend heavier strings, but after 28 years of using 9's I don't really want to. lol

I for one am not surprised that GuitarSlim can bend heavy strings, afterr all look what he can do to his nose with his finger.

With time and motivation, it can come...it comes with frustration, as well...switching to heavier strings is almost like learning how to play again.
