Very interesting sound, if you can master the double fretboard.
Very nice sound! I’m barely able to cope with 4 strings… let alone tapping…
It’s very interesting, but if he’s just tapping on both, he might want to just take up piano.
Finally someone says my opinion of excessive tapping out loud!
I was restraining myself out of respect for the Berthoud fans
I do admit to enjoying watching Boh go crazy with it though.
That’s true. I can fully respect how difficult it is to do some of these crazy things. I just have no interest in doing them myself, like not even an aspiration. It’s like paying a different instrument to me. Same for crazy fast bass solos. It’s just now how I personally see the bass. Respect and appreciation for the technical ability though.
Yeah. I think Charles Berthoud is amazing, and yet I have no aspirations to go in that direction stylistically myself, at all. Fun to watch though
I aspire to achieve a Berthoud or Marcus or Victor type of level, but realistically feel I could obtain a Tim Comerford or Justin Chancellor level lol. Tapping is just HARD to do for me. Patting head and rubbing belly squared.
Boh has purpose behind his
As to the 8 string, Boh plays his six string with players on 8 and 9 string guitars. I don’t know 8 strings adds anything
Traditionally an 8 string bass is similar to a 12 string guitar, just has the octave. Craziest thing I’ve seen was a 20 string guitar on Jared Dines YouTube, and he actually plays the frickin thing!
