  1. Ok, this may be my first post, i just have to say a few things. I will be here for a while. Also, it is fun to percussive slab alot. In my band I don't do that all the time, I usually finger-play or use a pick, or a finger-thumb pick combination. But when I can i can slap just muted notes really really fast and it sounds cool with my friend on guitar going really fast just hitting drop-c powerchords about, 240 a min, but for about 30 seconds. So, don't **** on fieldy for doing what he does. When he plays I ca actually hear the notes he plays, ok they are hitten behind alot of fret-buzz but I can hear it. And when he plays finger-style (rare) it sounds very good.
  2. I also forgot, I also tap on my basses (sometimes slow, rarely fast).

    ah, this is under "bass humor"... i get it! haha!

    well, now for real: i can understand some of you arguments, even though i don't agree with you.
    but why "defend" fieldy when noone has said something against him...
    don't you think there have been enough of these "fieldy is good/no he is bad" threads?

    i ignore any threads/remarks/etc. about him, because that's not something worth discussing (IMHO).
  4. that's nice, B.O.
    thanks fer tellin' us.

    Try to keep in mind that while all of you are having your great debate about whether or not Fieldy sucks, He is laughing his ass off all the way to the bank. Whether or not you call it "talent" his "sound" works for the band. In music you can go one of two way, you can be the best you can be technically, and have a handfull of "enlightend"
    fans, who think your great, or, you can be just good enough to support the rest of the band, and make lots of money. Who do you think has the bigger bankroll, Vic Wooten, or the bassist for AC/DC?!

    let's face it people, the issue of Fieldy and his banjo (a drum with strings .. geddit ? geddit ?!) is _never_ going to go away. think of it as the weather - something us talkbassers fall back on when all our other topics have been exhausted ;)

  10. HAHA! dude after i read your post i nearly spit my drink all over my computer screen.
