    I don't know if it exists already, but there should be a Fieldy FAQ on Talkbass, such that when anybody asks ANY fieldy question, we just say "Look at the FAQ, it's all there."


    For example:

    How does he get that clicking sound?
    What gauge strings does he use?
    Where can I get shoes like him?

    etc etc..

    it might make room for more intelligent conversation in the forum.. perhaps...

    maybe??

    right?
     
  2. ok..
    first set of Fieldie questions :


    Q: did you ever consider taking classes, so you can learn how to play a bass ?
    A: uhr ? school ?? whuzzat ?

    It would head some potential threads off at the pass, but it sure would be a lot less fun around here.

    It could get pretty large, too. I was warned Fieldy's hip-hop album on Epic is due out July 3 and he rhymes, playes bass, guitar, and keyboards on it.
    I wonder how you get keyboards to go "click"?

    For better or worse, the guy is having more of an impact on a generation of electric bassists than a lot of Berklee grads. ;)

    Fieldy? Hip-hop? Fieldy Hip-hop? GOOD GOD, RUN!

    That's it. The last straw. I'm moving to Antarctica, or something, before the Americas are swallowed by the earth in terrible vengeance. If you thought Gaia was pissed about the Exxon Valdez, well, that don't hold a frickin' candle to how pissed off she'll be about a million clicky-boomy sounds ringing out across this nation... May God spare the good ones.

  5. For the love of God! If a self respecting bassist will care about him self and the country, somebody will tie Fieldy down to a couch and make him listen to a Jaco album!!

    I wonder who made the notion of korn being part hip hop, there is no element of any hip hop in their music. I mean i don't know how anyone could come up with that distinction. I'm not saying I'm a fan or anything, but im just saying there is no element of hip hop in the music as I can see.
     
  9. Do I have to wear adidas sneakers to play like him?
