Really mess around with how you pick it. Obviously, a bass, you can play finger style, you can play with thumb, you can play with a pick. In the track, sometimes, you know, I love playing finger style, but sometimes, it’s just not the right thing for the track.


Same kind of miking technique. A couple inches in, a couple inches out. Tambourine can be your best friend or your worst enemy. It’s a very loud, very annoying instrument. I mean, obviously, if this was an AC/DC song, we’d be spending a lot more time working on specific guitar parts and stuff like that, but what he’s doing now is adding textures to the song.

So the shorter scale makes it one, a little bit easier to play, but it gives it a little more of a woody sound. I’ve never used this particular guitar and this particular microphone in combination of each other, so what I’m going to do now is find a good mic placement for it.
