    I'm talking to my friend on the phone and in the background he hears "You can't hold no groove if you ain't got no pocket" and he goes, "Dude are you watching Seinfeld?!"

    What a guy! I just thought that was hilarious and I wanted to share it with you guys. :)

    I get that seinfeld comment all the time. When you actually play the theme, thats when it realy gets bad.

    Sorry for maybe stupid post, but every now and then you guys mention Seinfeld theme, and in our neck of woods we have no idea what that particular song is about (yeah we are that happy!! not that we don't have other ear candies..)

    Any link to soundclip? :ninja:

    ive lost count the amount of times im asked to play it. "man that sounds like seinfield, play seinfield" tis funny stuff.
  6. Seinfeld is a TV show from the 90's, arguably the best. The theme song was made with a keyboard with a patch to make it sound like a bass. Now most of the time when musically-retarded people here anything slapped on bass they think its the Seinfeld theme. It gets quite annoying sometimes. (next time try a google search.....)

    I had a girl reject me one night because of that same reason.
  11. I get it all the time! "That sounds like Seinfeld!"......
    I just play "Night Court" and get them off my ass!

    Some people persist, and I give 'em a slap solo to "sit down to".


    Seinfeld=keyboard crapola.

    I replicate it, and they stop buggin' me.

    Slapping = Seinfeld tune to everyone that doesnt know music.

    You should stop at slap...LOL!!!!!
  14. What about Law and Order?
  15. That's another good one, but isn't it mostly slap guitar?

    I had a few too many gins when I posted that earlier post. I sound like such a dork!:scowl:

    Well, I'm off it for a while now, back on the strict eating plan.:hyper:

    Fun while it lasted, but gotta bear down.

    Because one of her friends had told her it was Claypool, and I patiently explained how mp3s of it have been labeled Les Claypool, but it isn't, and how it took me about 5 seconds of Googling to figure it out. I was probably a little bit abrubt though.
