    I was dead asleep until abruptly awakend by my girlfriend (also a bass player) who told told me I was "beat-boxing" River People in my sleep :eek: :confused: !


    I have been playing (or trying to at least) this song for a month now. I have it on in the car, at work, at home and anywhere else I can play it (I'm a bit obsessed with this tune right now). It has seeped into my subconsious.....

    Anyone else losing their mind to Jaco songs or any tune for that matter.

    I remember when I learned that song. I obsessed over it a bit too, that line is very infectious, and it's a WORK OUT! phew.

    when I first started I could barely do it for a minute, now I can do it all night if needs be. But the point is, I remember staying up very late(3ish) playing that song for hours(taking rests)

    Something about it, it never gets old for me.

    One of these days I want to arrange it and record it in Garageband, I have a songbook for Mr. Gone, has all the parts for all the songs, quite neat.

    but yeah, I think it's a good thing you were doing that in your sleep, I'm sure you have gotten better at the song as a result of that. :)

    Exactly!

    BTW "workout" is an understatment.
