TOOL FANS, I HAVE A TREAT FOR YOU!!

  1. He can pay me to give me lessons :D

    I now officially hate that song played by anybody but tool. Some chick came into guitar center, and i was all like "oh sweet a girl that can play bass" and she played that same song, but worse. She was hot, but I didnt even ask for a number, I was laughing too hard :D .

    P.S. She claimed she had played a little over year and was searching for another bass. I wish I could have told her to learn how to play the one she had first :bassist: .

    That's embarrassing. :meh: I uploaded a few clips of Justin playing that song, not sure when they'll show up on there. I'm glad bassists like him have inspired a lot of kids to play, but I laugh everytime I walk into guitar center and hear someone trying to play that and it sounds more like someone dropped a bass.

    That would have been good if he wasn't playing it.

    Note: Normally I don't mock bassists of lesser abilities, but not only does that guy have "bass master" next to his name, he felt the need to post that vid on the net!

    Maybe he should have put, Clayton Carlile - Master Basser.
     
  9. I like how his head is rocking out in the first part.

    yeah.. then the song gets too intense to concentrate on anything besides tearing it up, right?

    ghad... why do people post such foolishness. I hate it when people don't realize that what they're playing sounds nothing like the orignial recording. :rollno:

    edit: to brighten this thread up, here's very good tool cover that i found (no, seriously, it is frickin great!)

    Yeah, not a bad cover at all! Especially considering they look quite young.

    Looked like the guy playing bass had no legs. Quite sad really.

    I think he has legs... he's just sitting, unless he's got fake legs. I think he's just not hawt and shirtless so they kicked him to the back :meh: or maybe he needs to sit to play that (maybe he's use to fingerstyle and pic playing is a chore unless he sits... I dunno) I recall him even standing near the end. Quick check... yep he's standing near the end.

    I figured out why he thinks he's a bass master:

    :D I'm going to add him to my friends :D
     

  17. The ending riff I find to be a bit challenging. Or rather, I can't get it to sound good...



    This kid is a joke... nothing like Schism with no pick on a P-bass... :rollno:
     
  18. That kid is sick! I can't post the pictures on here but their are some disgusting things on there :eek: . YUCK :rollno:
