    Ryan Martinie is by far my favorite bassist, and I used to know all of MuDvAyNe's songs a while ago. I recently "re-learned" them, and some of them are hard! This was a big wake up call for me, that I really, really suck!! lolz...
  2. I can totally relate.

    By no means do I suck, I consider myself intermediate.... with many years of learning in front of me. But when I started playing some of mudvaynes stuff.. wow, you know? As far as technique Martines basswork on L.D.50 is easy to for me to follow, but the weird time signatures are nuts.

    I believe the expression on my face when I first played 'dig' the correct way (with the CRAZY GO NUTS :rolleyes: verse) was :D. Fun stuff.

    Rock on.
  3. I agree...

    I watched Ghost Ship,and the crew dude played Not Falling and I was like "sweet,ok maybe i'll give this song another try" and when I looked it up on Guitar Pro...I reached for my blankey:bag:

    I can see why everyone jocks him, but man, nothing he does is that far out. Just sit back, listen and play along, youll eventually get it. That being said, he was my fav. bassist for a while.:D

    Hey Obsolex, I just have to ask this: If you live 3 hours from LA and 3 hours from SF, how can you be in southern CA? I live about 20 min from LA, and I could say I am in southern, but ti sounds more to me like you are in Central? :confused:

    Oh yeah, Ryan is a great bassist... just like any other metal band, he follows the guitar a lot, but he breaks of every now and then. I really like it when he jsut plays simple power chords. Listen to the break on "Pharmaecopia". I really like that song and "Severed".
  7. i give him credit for his tone, and his technique and uniqueness, sorry but you dont hear chording and slapping in rock/metal often.

    I am not so sure about that... I would say that many a rock bassist slaps. As far as chords go... I am sure that people do it, I am just too stupid to hear it:rolleyes:

    I love playing Mudvayne songs.

    Death Blooms and Nothing to Gein are my favorites to play. Though Not Falling is pretty fun too (but was a bitch to learn, kinda)

    Man, I know EXACTLY what you're talking about...that slap fill at the end of each verse is ridiculous. :eek:
  11. I love the beginning of Nothing to Gein on bass,I can play that...

    try Everything and Nothing (number 10 on LD.50)

    it has some bass fills and a little interlude...really cool.

    I love Not Falling...but I can never get it:(

    Bass Player magazine did a cover story on him a few months back. I was really skeptical before I read it and not really a fan of Mudvayne's music. After reading the story I admit he's really got some great talent and drive. After picking up the CD I must say he really makes the tunes sound good with his technique. He was the first person I have actually READ about using the tip of their index finger as a pick when playing. I do that all the time and thought I was weird for doing it.
