This guy on another chat group posted these comments about his bassplaying: "i have only been playing for a year, but i am damn good...i am playing right on time (a RHCP track, octave 16ths at 126bpm) up to speed...i can play several songs by primus...i can play some victor wooten...i want to play classical thump by victor wooten, but can't find a tab for it...if anyone can tab that, i would be most grateful" ...and... "btw if 16th notes are hard then i can play really hard ****...i can play 32 notes easy, and on a good day i can pluck straight 64th notes" Personally I think this guy is totally full of shed. But how possible is what he's saying? Are there people out there who can play like genius inside a year? I genuinely don't think there are. I don't think humans have the ability to learn that quickly, at any age. I guess he's a bit of weirdo, but I just wondered if anyone on TalkBass was this good inside a year?
