    i see a lot of stuff about justin chancellor and kud but i see no stuff about timmy c from RATM. what's every1 think of him?
     
  2. Timmy is a great bassist, I really like him.
    Plus I think you're talking about Ryknow, Kud is the vocalist of Mudvayne.

    Yeah tim rocks. His line in "People of the Sun" is awesome.
     
  6. Nice use of overdrive and compression, I thought he got some good sounds and he really inspired me to start using overdrive to cut through.
     
  7. I liked that songbird thing he did.

    Oh wait, sorry, I thought you said Kenny G ;)

    Yes
    Lotsa people think that Evil Empire was a bad RATM cd, but I love it. Fun basslines that are relatively simple.
     
  9. He's actually the bassist that inspired me to start playing. Great tone, and some really fun slap/pop lines.

  13. took me a while to get TimmyC his style is very simple... but effective.

    Personally I think Renegades is the best album they ever did and it's by far their best album for bass parts.

    he´s using nothing! (maybe a compressor)
     
  16. Mr C also inspired me to play, and his bass lines are great. Specially love Know Your Enemy, the chords, ahh the chords. BRILLIANT.

    In calm like a bomb you might want to play your right hand further up the fret board, it sounds pretty close when i do that. (Having a Jazz Bass also helps i suppose). Evil Empire is by far and away their weakest album. RATM and Battle of LA are their best in my opinion, but then again I'm smarter than the average bear.
     
  17. I thought mia meant missing in action? :confused:
     
  18. no no no, you're both wrong it stands for Miami International Airport.

    Yes
    I never said it was their best, but I like it. The self-titled is the best IMO.
