It's kinda a shame. I was really hoping for a followup from the OP, but alas, there is none. I guess life isn't all about Talkbass and Metal for everyone. Anyway, I do have a question about technique. Does anyone use the Gary Willis technique to play metal? I personally enjoy prog metal and jazz fusion, so I'm learning it to play fast lines that are also interesting and intervallic, but I was wondering if people used it in more simple forms of metal. It's not all that common so I wouldn't be too surprised if no one here or anywhere used it, but I am curious.
