I'm sure some of you have heard them on Youtube and various places. I have to say I was pretty blown away at how bad a lot of them are. I mean they are HORRIBLE. Off-time, sloppy, farty tone, missed notes, the whole sha-bang. Actually got me to thinking, why even practice if these guys can get away with playing like crap in the studio? It obviously doesn't take away from the final product so what's the point in even bothering to go through the trouble? I take pride in what I can do and you would think that these guys would too seeing as how that's what they get paid to do. Do the producers just tell them to throw down whatever they want because it doesn't really matter in the long run? I've never worked with a producer before so if any of you have or know why they would let these guys get away with recording a load of garbage and call it a bassline let me know the reasons.
