    Yes it's true! Check out the millions of threads up at BG! By the way, Jase does play DB, "kinda" well.
     
  2. That's the guy with the chainsaw and hockey mask, rigt/
    He's plays?
     
  3. yea man he kicks it out!
    i love that he uses an electric chain saw now, it gets such funkier tones out of the pickup than the gas one did.

    unless this is about jason newstead in which case this is now the fourth thread on the topic

    I have a deep hollow feeling in the core of my being. Metallica without Jason? Surely it can't be possible.

    that´s how it goes. Blaaah.
    Howabout calling the beast in Portuquese from now on?
    "Contrabaixo" has a nice klang in it...

    Yeah! I heard Peter Tork was no longer playing bass for the Monkees. What a shame!

    Anybody know where I can get any cool Peter Tork bass tabs?

    Well don't you think it's kinda unfair when you say, in an orchestra setting, "bass" that people automatically think of the contrabass, when the tuba and contrabasson have just as much bass in them.
     
  10. True story: I recently purchased and AKG c4000b mic. When the music store salesdope asked what I'd be using it for and I told him doublebass, he started telling me that might not be a good choice for two bass drums. I cut him off, saying,"nah, string bass." That confused him so much I figured the only way to comminucate this would be to speak his language: I put my left hand up by my head, my right hand out in front of belly and gave him a couple seconds of air bass.
