    first does anyone know how the bass player plays so fast. now this may b a bit stupid coz i just found a website that tells you. i just wanted your views anyway.

    Are you referring to Cliff Suttle? His bio says he has been playing over twenty years. Time will give you speed IF that is your primary objective. Time and hours and months of dedicated practice. You can do it...if you want.

    20 years! i have been playing about just under a year and i can play the verse in around the world, and my bro who has been playing guitar for 9 years and bass just picking it up every now and then cant do that so i'm quite proud.

    and i think that the problem is my fretting hand won't move fast enough.
