    It's ok........ I had teacher at a conservatoire faster that.... and his take always was..."all it is, is tricks, put a little effort in and we'll have you doing that in no time" I never put much time into it and on Good day i can see why he said that.... It ain't music, it's technique...

    On Broadway never sounded better!
  11. He sounds like a poor man's Tom Kennedy. I hear the same lick that Tom Kennedy over uses across the neck. That said, I can't pull it off, so good on him.

    I enjoyed it. He has a nice tone, and I enjoyed the bit of humor. :)

    Man, everyone has his opinion, but i don't think he is like Tom... he maybe takes something from him, cause tom is the history! but federico has is own style that u can like or not :) also tom take something from others bass players, but then he developed his own style, like federico does....that's my opinion
  14. the OP's clip is pretty astounding.
    great tone and articulation throughout.
    ( but that insanely overused "cut on the next measure" 2-camera thing is cludgy overkill.)
    btw, there's a NAMM '12 youtube clip up, with Hadrien and Federico dueting in the ken smith booth.
  15. Good cover of a great MJ tune. Anyone else remember the video with the claymation rabbit?

  16. I was really just talking about the one lick that seems to keep coming up with both guys.
  17. Newman!!
