kuyashii: Paul McCartney's bass playing is so

Baronessa: Bass slappers tend to get stuck in open-string hell way too often as well.

kuyashii: Yeah I get the point that it's a percussive technique and as such it's used to emphasize the rhythmic dimension of the song, but overall I personally think groove is overrated

kuyashii: It's very hard to hear a song with bass slapping that doesn't come off as an attempt to "easily impress the musically uneducated" instead of actually complimenting the composition

kuyashii: @baronessa I don't deny bass slapping requires a great amount of technical prowess but my biggest problem with it is how difficult to use in a musically tastefully way it is. It's like the guitar equivalent of tapping in a sense

siouxsie: "night ride home" and "turbulent indigo" started to showcase a noticeable strain in her voice

siouxsie: then there's "dog eat dog", she still had that beautiful high register almost intact, but it was so much deeper
Oct 21, 2019 18:30:52 GMT
siouxsie: but not only that, also how gradual it was, if you compare her voice in "song to a seagull" to her voice in "hejira" you'll already notice a huge difference

siouxsie: man it really puzzles me how much joni mitchell's voice has changed over the years

Baronessa: From what I observed the previous incarnation of it encouraged bad posting or no posting at all, but if you really want to put it out there perhaps a more focused thread concerning bass techniques and such would prove to be more productive in the long run.

kuyashii: I really want to say how much I hate bass slapping

kuyashii: BTW, can I create an "Unpopular Opinions" thread or would that kind of thread be discouraged?
