Looking over old threads I have noticed a lot of Fieldy bashing going on. I realise that his sound is unique and that may not appeal to others (I am part of this group) but you have to admire a person who goes out and defines a new style of playing and sound (I know it is just a form of slap) also how he actually works it into their also unique sound. I am sure that when slap was invented there were plenty of people who rejected it. But why would you reject it is part of the ever evolving state of music and bass without pioneers of different sounds it would be a very narrow road musicians travel. I also feel that in order to achieve musicians must step outside the square they live in if they are able to produce music which affects us and moves us this is what the greats have done and I feel this is why we should be open to new sounds. This is just my 2 cents worth what do you think.
