How do i make funny sounds with my bass guitar?

How do i make funny sounding things with my bass guitar. I have 22 frets.

Chosen Answer:

Get a “bass synth” pedal.

Boss do a good one and so do Digitech. Try one in your music store and you’ll be hooked – trust me. They aren’t too expensive either.

YouTube them to see and hear what they can do.

You could also try distortion and fuzz pedals. I have two delay pedals that I use on my guitars and recently have been messing about with bass through them – again, tons of fun.

Good luck!!!

    experiment experiment experiment. you can do little things like play with the strings that go over the nut. also if you play a note and hold each end of the bass and move it like a see saw it will bend the note in a weird way.

    do weird stuff in weird places while its plugged in. have fun

    play the open G string while fretting the 4th fret on the D string. Not sure if your bandmates with find this funny, but it makes a horrible sound.

    turn your amp all the way up, turn the treble all the way to 10, stand right in front of your speaker and twang the skinny G string real hard!!!!!!

    DO ANYTHING YOU LIKE

    Seriously. Try a range of techniques, a range of notes, trying using a combination or alternate strings. Try slapping popping, anything

    Oh i also sujjest playing with objects. I like hitting notes with my remote control.

    Another way is use a guitar pick in different ways such as turning it sideways
