    I keep watching it, hoping the neck snaps, flies up and does harm. Much harm.

    Is he serious? That poor, poor bass.

    I always stretch strings a bit when I've just put a new set on. But not quite as brutally as that.
  6. His slap/pop video also has an "abuse the bass" theme. This guy obviously has some anger issues.

    I don't see any anger. :confused:

    That's just how he plays and I thought he seemed pretty laid back.;)

    I like the band but I'm not quite sure about the string stretching method he employs! To each his own!!

    he does play pretty well in his band tho. real strange..
  14. Watch his video on how to play the C Minor scale...Not that it's really wrong, but he refers to the notes as C, D, D#, F, G, G#, A#, C.

    Some people like that are better off just shutting up and playing, and leaving the instructional videos to pro bassits who actually know what they're talking about and can accurately convey what they know.

    I stretch my strings like that - well, I don't pick up my bass with them, but close. Always worked for me....anyone want to make fun of me?

    Just 'cause its on the web doesn't mean it has any value at all.

    All children should be raised as skeptics. I started mine on MAD magazine.

    For some reason, if you read Pac's post as if were being said by Robert Deniro, it's a lot funnier.

    "I have nipples--can you milk me?"

    Heh....I need more sleep. :D

    FWIW, I am also pretty vigorous when I install new strings. I might not pick the bass up with the string and shake it, but, like Pacman, I come pretty close. Never had one break, and never really had any problems with the strings going out of tune after I stretch them out, either.

    I stretch too, but not that vigorously. That is a bit extreme to me.
  20. Doesnt look healthy to me, all i do to strech my strings is keep tuning them up every half hour or so the day i stick them on, they usually settle fairly quickly
