    Just wondering what people in general are looking to learn and improve on. A casual topic :)

    Mine would be to Paul Chambers:
    1. What are some tricks you use in your walking basslines?
    2. Will you teach me your right hand technique?
    3. Will you sell me your soul?
  2. ElectroVibe

    1. Any chance of me becoming as good as you without putting in all of the hours upon hours of practice that are necessary?

    2. Could you set up a trust fund for me as a type of "fan appreciation" gesture?

    3. How do you deal with all of the crazy fans like myself?
  3. I'll go with Paul Chambers. Good choice.

    1. Tell me your 10 favorite ways to create the notes for beats 2 and 3.

    2. Tell me your 10 most important qualities for a drummer.

    3. Tell me why I should keep playing bass, and what I should improve over the next year.
  4. I'd ask T.M Stevens

    1 How does one become so funky?
    2 Will you teach me?
    3 Can I have a Warwick?:D

    I'd ask Pete Wentz:

    1. What's it like to bang Ashlee Simpson?

    2. What's it like to bang thousands of girls in one night?

    3. What's the name of that monkey who directed that one video?
