1. Flatwounds are a must for that thumpy, no sustain sound.

2. Play in a high register. Never ever go deeper than an A on your E string.

3. Walking bass is OK, but keep it simple. Fills are strictly verboten!

4. Pluck with your thumb.




That sums it up! Though I tend to stay in the low register with rounds, but that's only because I'm a phony and a fraud.
