a drummer friend of mine was loitering upstairs in the music school after school was over, waiting for the bassist for his band to show up so they could do some recording. i happened to be there picking up some sheet music for the mid-term concert next week, and he started playing a beat. i picked up the GT that was there and we jammed. in the middle of our insane funk-drum-n-bass instrumental, his bassist friend walked in and stood aghast, watching my thumb and fingers funk out 32nd note passages ... i swear, this guy's mouth dropped. as we finished up with a resounding clash, the only thing this guy could say was (and i quote) ... "HOLY F*CK!!" man, it's one thing to receive praise from other non-bass playing musicians, but from *a* bass player, it was kinda something. certainly a confidence booster. has anyone else had similar experiences ?
