    Seriously, I'm trying not to!

    Why kids don't take lessons from professionals is beyond me!

    You saying he is a bad player. Or needs lessons?

    First, I have a real question, why are there so many Japanese youtube clips where the person playing an instrument wants to remain anonymous? I'm totally in the dark.

    However, the bassist is pretty good, annoying song but played well.

    He obviously knows very little about scales and moving across the neck instead of up and down it.
    Tons of unnecessary movements including that over the top of the neck thumb thing. :(

    Sounds like Steve Vai's 1st album meets the Chipmunks' hash pipe...

    you know that notes up higher on the neck sound different than the same ones that are lower on the neck right? I've seen tons of bassists play that way, and sometimes its just more fun or even easier to play up higher on the neck.

    I've seen plenty of Americans post videos with their heads not visible. Then there are bassists like the Korean hjfreaks who like to show everything. I'm not a fan of the music, but he's fun to watch when he plays it.
     
  9. This type of Asian music is sooo different to other music. I find it very annoying. All the bass sounds the same on all these types of songs.
    And, absolutely NO groove, just annoying. Bass is played ok, but hate the bass line.
