What bassist would you say is closest to
A) Your ability
B) Your writing style
Nobody can my compete with my l33t bass-hompin' skills
This is just a hypothesis but in my opinion you would have to combine the talent of Jaco, Victor Wooten, Bill Dickens, Michael Manring, Stu Hamm, Stanley Clarke, and Juan Nelson and many many others to get just a tiny fraction of my skill. This is coming from someone who can play Classical Thump...with his toes, on 2 different basses, similtaniously. Plus I can play 8192nd notes at 10,000 bpm, with one finger.
BTW I use a 17 string bass
I am the greatest. Mix between Les Claypool, Flea, and P-Nut. A little Rob Merrill-style, I mean heavy rock.
That's pretty good, but I hate to break it to you, I can do all that with 3 strings.
Another drmike? Wow, one in the US and one in the UK.
A) Nobody - I am closest to me.
better than sid vicious, fieldy, and that guy from linkin park so maybe i suck.
hehe.. tolkien. He writes.. with the.. and the book.. and hey.. i dont get it. nevermind
I write like Robert DeLeo (Who sometimes sounds like he cant figure out what the guitarist is doing.) But I prefer comparing my ability to P-Nut. I think we're about on the same level.
You really can't compare yourself to a regular conversation topic on here without sounding conceited... unless you can.
ya...umm...well...uh...i can do that on my washtub bass!
ho-hum, another thoroughly inviting thread for newbies to come and tell us how much they'd kick the sh*t out of Flea if he was here right now
there's no point in comparing myself to guys in bands, because what they play in the band probably has little bearing on what they can rip out in their spare time. if one was to judge my skill level by the lines i play in my band, i would immediately be deemed "crap on a stick", but then again a lot of guys don't understand the concept of taste or the need to simplify (i sing as well, and thus finger-frying passages go out the window in favour of keeping my voice in tune. sorta.). i like to leave a fair bit of space for my bandmates to stretch out and show what they can do (getting away from my rep as a "lead" bass player was always going to be difficult), so i guess i take the "Sting approach" towards my lines, although of course i don't possess Sting's understanding of music so naturally my lines suck next to his. bugger.
sorry poser, I can do it with NO strings!
Oh yeah? Who're you calling a poser - I can do it on a BASS as in FISH!
Amatures, I can do all that and more by sticking my hand in my armpit and playing it like that (remember the great fun making fart noises like that? )
well, I've been known to break out "Mary Had a Little Lamb" on occasion.
1- Not Horrible*. But marginally so.
2- Horrible. By no means marginally.
3- Working on both of the above.
6th Edition Brendanairy-
Horrible- Only a bit better than a fish out of water at a cat convention.
BWAH !! all i do is eat some hot mexican bean-food, and the rest... well.. it comes.. naturally..
AllodoX, we are talking about a stringed instrument, not a wind instrument.
As good as my kittie.
And i write like a first grade english student.
Well I am quite crap. I have been playin 'bout a year and a half and I have yet to start learnin slap bass or anythin. Sayin that my bass is ****e too.
