is that a bit of foam under your strings, next to the bridge? If so whats the purpose of that?
Yes - that's exactly right. It's a piece of bath foam - costs about &pound;0.50 GBP and I cut a strip that fits under my strings.<br><br>The purpose is to 'kill' the sustain of the notes - which also makes the notes much 'thuddier.' It works great for reggea and classic r&amp;b - and also some modern hip hop type stuff too.
