    I'm really starting to think that this is one of the craziest bass anthems of all time. We're talking Primus here by the way - Pork Soda. I think I've got 1 of the riffs down, but he's playing so insanely fast it's hard to tell what the hell is going on (killer drums by the way). A lot of it is just "noise" as in he's not making notes sound - There's a crap load of mutes and left hand slap/tap things going on as well as some little power chords to go along with the overall clickety-
    clacketyness. Anybody have a clue? I think I just talked myself out of even bothering with this tune - nobody but Colonel Claypool can play this.

    I learned bits and pieces of it, but yeah, that's a burly song.

    I never really sat down and solidified it, um, but I never really solidified any primus song, I just can fake my through pretty much the whole lot of 'em. :meh:

    And, nobody but claypool can play it, it's his song, he knows how to play it, and really get it to sound like he wants it to, even if I knew all the notes, and how to play them, I still wouldn't sound like les ;)

    I feel a little better now, for a second there I thought you were going to say that you play that in your sleep.
    Nice work on that Reza - pretty cool.
