    along with the generous helping of fieldy-q, the nu-metal necessity for any bassist trying to make a musical statement. after all, we can't trudge on those guitars, now can we? :rolleyes:

    .....and DR Hi-Beams with the action about a foot off the fretboard.

    Note: There is no "Ryknow" any longer. With their new album, all the "lads" have changed their names.
    "Ryknow" is now "R2-D2" or "Ru-d" or something.
    Just thought we all needed to know in case the subject comes up at the dinner table or talking with the boss at work.
  5. yeah, my boss just asked me about that! 'We need to implement that network change...by the way, what's up with the Mudvayne guys changing their names?' :D

    Common myth: Ryan Martinie uses fretless basses.

    Truth: uses lots of chords, blues vibrato, and just good technique. Seen em live twice, nary a fretless all night, have the DVD, nary a fretless to be seen.

    Are you sure Brendan? I thought there's at least one tune on the live dvd/LD50 disk where r uses a lined warwick thumb five fretless.

    Check out the intro to Severed, isn't that a fretless? If its not, then damn! i need vibrato like that!

    ryan martinie does _not_ use a fretless...between his technique and heavy use of compression it sure as heck sounds like one.....but not

    yup, he DOES NOT use a fretless.. i read an interview with Ryan Martinie in a bass magazine from japan and he even said he never uses a fretless.. the sound from the intro for severed is him playing a regular warwick thumb 5 iwth lots of compression

  14. From now on my name shall not be pronounced by the human tounge, I am only to be known by the penguins as *makes penguin noises* but you may all call me Mr. Squeeky.:rolleyes:
  15. o my god that was funny.i love mudvayne but the name thing is funny.what icon pic thing do u have big feet it looks like some thing tim burton would do.
  16. Not Tim Burton, but still gothic... it's actually a pretty funny comic, nothing like a tiny, dancing pocket goth getting an anal probe.

    I feel the same way, kirby. He and the drummer are pretty talented (and that's coming from a guy who went to college in the 70's). Those two don't need all these lame "gimmicks", IMO.
