    A guitar battle ( or in this case a bass battle ) is about impress ...

    and well in that case, victor Wooten will win, he has more knowledge in theory, advanced technical skill and he has cleaner technic.

    Geddy is a rocker and Flea is a punk I don't think that can survive in a battle like that.

    You were supposed to say "Victor Wooten!"

    Now this has all gone sour. :mad:

    Geddy Lee, by virtue of being able to multitask. Bass solo while playing Taurus footpedals and singing.

    If I'm not mistaken flea took a year at Berklee so he's pretty informed on music theory

    But he still play boring line since two or three album of pop music with RHCP. Before he felt old and that he should relax his playing ... So he doesn't quite use his newly acquire knowledge.

    Or the audience will vote for who does the best recognizable hit song. And if each does his or his group's own music it depends upon the generation and ethnic breakdown of the audience
