    I almost exclusively play in odd times. If it's 4/4, I'll make it sound like an odd time.

    My deal is that 4/4 in metal sounds really really old to me.

    There is a style of music out here in New Mexico called "Ranchero." It is basically northern mexican country music. All the bass lines sound like boom-bim boom-bim.

    Exactly. I was thinking the same thing, but just couldn't articulate it so cleanly. Thanks for the input. :ninja:

    Based on moles' question mark and DK's use of an "s" to designate more than one toybasser, I can only assume that my comment is being misconstrued as serious . . . it was sarcastic. I have no idea what the shag chaos is trying to say.

    Oh man, I had no idea I was posting in the DB forum!

    I played DB back in the day in high school. I once took the thing home on a public bus.

    hehe - I didn't think you were being serious...
     
  8. I didn't know that about you. You're sarcasm was so obvious, I thought you were one of us. :)

  10. How about Haition Fight Song (Mingus) although at one time every college level bassist would trot it out, but it does qualify though. No offense to the college cats out there!
     
  11. By calling our instrument a " thing " only separates our ties with you guys on that side.
    This saddens me.

    Maybe one of those New Mexico Brujos cast a spell and sent you over here:bag:.......in that case that "THING" could be just what the doctor ordered!
