    No,this thread is not dumb.It's a good question.Well he's right he uses an overdrive,and i've played the intro to around the world through it and i thought it sounded good.

    And ram,if youre not joking,well distortion is an effect that makes it sound very fuzzy,just about every electric guitarist in all kinds of rock use distortion.if you wanna hear distortion on bass then listen to the intro of "around the world" by red hot chili peppers.
