    I checked out the huckabee clip on youtube.

    Why does the band's bass player play along, and then continue with the exact same tone as the clip ends? His presence is most noticeable when huckabee high-fives the gutiar player and we still hear the same end "accent" as it wraps up on g. there is no hammer on there, either.

    It is obvious that he is playing the proper parts, but it seems fishy when teh above happens and we see the camera pull away during the eights about half way through.

    It's obvious he can play, but was he just thumping along with little in the mix here?
  2. Good point! Did you also know that we never landed on the moon? All that stuff was faked on a movie soundstage while the Apollo astronauts circled the earth. Elvis staged his death and is living on a tropical island with Andy Kaufman and President Kennedy...

    Most likely the part you were refering to they were just pretend playing at the time. after all sometimes when making a video it's hard to play the right part or sing the right note when doing the weird things that can be done in video's.

  9. Yes, there MUST have been a second picker, somewhere in the grassy knoll.

    Notice how the Fender J's headstock goes back, and to the left...back, and to the left...back, and to the left.

    You can see the house bassist playing with the band also. I dont think Huckabee was faking but I think both bassists were playing at the same time.
  11. Huckabee wasn't really playing, it was a guy on the grassy knoll.

    This is the second Huckabee thread I've closed because of posters inability to talk about Huckabee the BASSIST.

    In no way is political discussions or innuendos (religion also) allowed here.
