    Cool. Thanks for the link.
  3. I honestly was bored to tears until Oteil stepped in...

    Thanks for the link. I just don't find a multitude of bassists all playing together at the same time to be that pleasant of a sound... just my opinion. keep the flames to yourself folks.

    Neat tone from Sheehan, then again, I like it gritty...

  10. Hit a artificial harmonic, but hit it from an angle so it's not a pure tone.

    I dunno, I was kinda bored during most of it. There were some parts that were cool, but I dunno, just grabbed me as like, man when's this going to be over heh...maybe I just don't appreciate it?

  19. Not sure what to think of it. I wish they had shown tony levin doing some crazy stuff, you barely see him. To me, when you have bass virtuoso's like them playing solo, lots of it begins to sound the same to my ears. No doubt there was some killer chops and melodies in that video though.
