    Ah yes, "The Awakening"! Hmm...Did you know that Les Claypool DID NOT write that song? Dexter Redding (a virtuoso slapper), and member of the band, The Reddings, wrote and recorded that song in the late 70's-early 80's! I can't stand the fact that Les Claypool is being recognized for a song he didn't create!! Furthermore, Dexter would 'slap' Les silly! ;)
  3. i know les didnt write it and ive heard Redding's version but i am asked to play les's redition. this is what i was talking about when i posted the post about givin some more credit to us younger bassists but i wont cause any problems

    just stay coool.....
