Bass chords problem

Post  ben9394 on Thu Jan 06, 2011 6:48 pm

When I do bass chords I don't get how to strum them. I've used my thumb on its own and my finger and thumb to sorta pinch them and hit both at once but both dont sounds right.

I was tying to play know your enemy by rage against the machine but I don't understand why the chords sound wrong when I play them.

So does anyone have some advice if you don't know he song here it is.

I know at the beginning intro he is popping the chords but I cant get the sound when I do that it don't sound right also my bass isn't very good with popping to be honest but the chords later sound wrong and there not popping there normal I have been told and it sounds bad.

So does anyone maybe know why this is. The chords im talking about are at around 51 seconds you will know when you here them.

To pop chords, I use my index finger and my middle finger or my middle and my ring. Depends a bit. The trick is to pop simultaneously with two fingers. Wink
