OK so after my post on the excellent version of Skrillex’s Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites, I discovered the method the bass player uses to achieve the characteristic dubstep wub wub wub bass wobbles on an electric bass guitar.
Thanks all those people who emailed me to tell me what it was – many of you were even correct!
But before I give away the technique, here’s a closer look at the dubstep action live:
That’s Nathan Navarro performing there and he’s using the Source Audio Hot Hand.
I’m sure it won’t come as a complete surprise that just buying the Hot Hand will not alone make you play as well as Nathan. But it looks like a lot of wub wubbing fun to me.
