Try turning up the treble control all the way.

I believe it works best with a death metal pedal, no bass, and the treble and mids all the way up, I've mocked them many a time...

This kind of rudeness won't get you too far, generally....

Anyway. Detune a whole step (on a 5 string, too, I believe) and then smack the hell out of it. It sounds like he has a really low action too as the strings rattle for a considerable amount of time.

Pretty much as I said, plus (as HRH Lesa said)plenty of treble on the amp, and keep the strings fretting hand muted, I believe. I'm not too sure of how he does it, but that's where I would start.

When you get alot of different people together, there is going to be someone that doesn't agree with you. That's o.k. tho..it's not a big deal, it's a difference of opinion, that's all..No need to get defensive or hurt feelings. We all get along great here, for the most part. Profane language not only is not acceptable, but it will get you kicked out of A.B..

Ok so you all say Fieldy sucks... so what? What he's playing sounds just right for the band he's playing in (well, i seem to think so anyway)! And his technique may not be great, but personally i think the sounds he does get out of his bass are great.

Anyway, that's MY opinion on him now. I've learnt to appreciate other peoples opinions so please do the same :)

Hey Mark..I think the ones that say Fieldy is no good are just jealous...you see, he is rich, famous and has made music that people paid money for. They haven't. So, out of that jealousy, they talk him down. Makes them feel big and manly...if he is so bad...then why is he where he is? Why do people still buy their cd's and pay top dollar for concert tickets?

Lesa Lesa Lesa...

In Nu Metal bands you don't NEED talented bass players. All Fieldy does for a living is pretend he's an awesome bass player and visit clubs every night.

Though I am jealous about the money and fame part. ^_^

One could argue that yes Fieldy's playing fits right in with Korn. Of course many people who find Korn a rather sucky band. That means that Fieldy fits right in with a sucky band, which most likely means he sucks as well.

I'm leaving my opinions out. I'm just playing around really.

That's great that you like them so much! They have probably inspired you to play bass! Elton John is my hero. I love him, and he is the reason I got into music back in 1973..Alot of people don't like him because he is "GAY"..but I don't care what they think..I only care about what makes ME happy.

He wears the glasses because that's his "Thing" and besides that, his vision is very bad. I do wear some wild outfits when I play....but not to the extent that E.J does.

I love the first album but since then they've failed to impress me.

Don't you hate it when bands release awesome first albums, but never follow it up with anything as good. Machine Head and Skinlab also spring to mind.

True none of their albums have matched the intensity of their first but they're still great albums. I think Untouchables is the closest they've come to matching the s/t album.
