    So i watched a video with stu hamm and satriani, he played a bass solo into country music(a night in hell) An WOW!!
    He's just amazing! I'm new to both tapping and slapping but he seem to master it!
    He's fun to watch and his sound is really great!

    I hear that guys like yngwie malmsteen:)spit:) practiced from early morning to late night so how much do you think these guys practice? Or is it just in the blood?

    Anyway, Stu hamm got a new - fan :D

    They probably practice 8 hours a day, well, not anymore maybe, but such skill is defenitely a combination of talent and lots and lots of practice!

    Yeah, Stu Hamm is great, too bad about his shirts though :D
     
  3. Um...why do you spit on Malm? You might not like his music but his talent as a guitarist is undeniable. If you hate him, you just might be a blink 182 fan:D

    I like Hamm's playing, but always thought his tone sounded like butt . . . .

    And his choice of dress is . . . well . . . I'd be suprised if he hasn't lost a few calls for gigs because of it . . .

    He's fun to listen to and certainly a good guy to learn the ins and outs of "Musician's Institute"-style chops wankery. He also has a great internal metronome.

    I think I've outgrown his music, but he was one of my early inspirations.
     
  7. Stu is one of my favorite bassists; his compositions are creative and fun. Far from a proveyer of wankery, as far as I'm concerned.

    Enjoy his stuff!

    +1 for Stu. My bass instructor showed me one of his earlier videos a while back and it really got me thinking about what the bass can do. It also sparked my interest in the Kubicki Ex-Factor, and here I am a few years later with one in my lap as I type this. To me, that will always be Stu's bass. That's really weird... I didn't realize how much of an influence he has been on me until right now. Cool.

    He's an awesome player, I took a lesson from him once, mostly just to meet him.

    Saw him play his solo stuff at a small venue a few weeks later too.
