    How to play metallica: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3250688036310509988&q=bass&pl=true

    Aside from being out of tune the whole time, his... ahem... additions to the song are, well, if he was in tune, still would be in the wrong key. :meh: (see the intro and the accoustic solo part... freeform jazztallica :D )

    I'm just so confused.... here's the deal: I suck at bass... so I don't make vids of myself rockin' like Dokken. Why is this such a strange concept. On the plus side, he'll find this vid of himself 5 years down the road, and wonder what the hell he was thinking.
     
  2. yeah, him and that james kid who did the RATM basslines...apparently sucking is the new rocking

    that guy makes that song look so hard :)

    You made me interrupt megadeth for that, thank you very much.

    Yeesh. What a video. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: if you're going to suck, suck with shame!

    You're really good at finding the worst Matt.

    We can only hope. He may just use it for an audition vid...

    OK, make the hair right, make sure there's not too much sweat on the brow, pinch that nose leak, set the bracelet straight, now let's play some bass ... let's see ... was it on the dots, or no dots?

    the bass playign was pretty sad... but the singing he did was really pretty awful.

    Sorry man, I guess that was a little harsh. Still, there's a fair bit of work to be done. It's not as bad as everyone here is saying, but it does need work. Just keep at it! :) Matt Till is right though, your tuning is off, and I think you're hitting the wrong notes or something, it doesn't sound congruent with the song itself.

    My guess is you're laying the sarcasm on pretty thick... perhaps not. Regardless, playing along (wrong) to metallica songs isn't art. But I'm guessing this isn't really you.

    I'm not so sure- it has enourmous potential as art... ...without wanting to get into a debate as to what constitutes art, I mean.
