In the studio, I try to get quite an aggressive tone by digging into the strings with a pick – gives it a nice bit of attack!
In my head, my tiny brain only really wants two strings: the E for bass lines and the A for soloing – that’s really all that’s required
I would describe my bass style as somewhere around John Entwistle and Geezer Butler, with lots of finger-picking and quite busy in places, but also using a pick when required
I would describe my bass style as fast and noisy. I do not play five- or six-string bass, because if I wanted any more than four I would play guitar
