Here is an example of a Montuno bass line played with the right hand mute technique. This is the easiest way to get the right sound for this kind of music, if you don´t have the right bass with you. Especially playing in a band, which does´nt play the whole evening one style, it´s impossible to bring 4 or 5 basses with you. So you need a good bass and some different techniques to be able to come up with the requested sound. There are lots of videos explaining exactly how this works: lay the palm of your hand on all 4 strings close to the bridge, and pluck the notes with your thumb. Regarding to the pressure and the position of your palm the sound is changing. Check out how your bass sounds doing this…
