A bit annoying, but very cool at the same time! Pretty ripping thumb work.

Nice playing, and must be a candidate for Bass Face Hall of Fame,
Hell yeah! I dug it.
Yes, well done. It's not easy to get good timing on such lines.
flea would love that.
Very well done. But, not my cup of tea, didn't really care for it.
WOW! Amazing technique.
I would have enjoyed it more with simpler camera work gave me a headache sounded good.
Plus, those "serial killer" facial expressions are a major turn-off.
Ah, good point. I didn't mention that in my post.
It's funny how so many people on this planet seem to forget the common saying, "just because you can do something doesn't mean you should." That rule definitely applies to camera work (as well as many other things).
I think too many people try too hard (and place too much emphasis) on trying to impress others. In doing so, they overdo things, and it ends up backfiring on them and having the opposite effect.
A friend sent me this video from him last year:
I thought it was really well done.
He has a slap bass version of Tom Sawyer that I enjoyed too.
I didn't like any of it. I found the playing, tone and visual elements annoying.
I'm a lifelong lover of Primus and all things Les Claypool, I'm pretty down with RHCP, I've seen a couple of different Victor Wooten projects live, and I think this guy has actually finally made me want to learn how to slap...
We all realize the "visual elements" is him splicing in the drummers video of the same song right? Like.....a drummer did a YouTube video in the dark of the song, and this guy laid his bass on top of it.
Just so were all on the same page.....
I missed any sort of bomb. Someone should help dude install his strings.
