    It's funny at one point I signed up to take some college courses the user name they automatically gave me was the first 2 letters of my first name and the first 2 letters of my last name and a number I don't remember the numbers but the first part came out to Jaco. My ego isn't big enough to use that as a user name anywhere.

    tlc is my initials and I was born in 1976. Pretty simple. The initials have gotten a lot of jokes but my favorite was "tastes like chicken".

    The two parts of my name are "Two Colors" and "Killer"

    Two Colors is one of the first songs I wrote and was a hit (amongst friends) and "Killer" is the nickname I gave to my first bass. I used to say things were "Killer" a lot (as in cool) and I wrote "Killer B**CH" on my bass's case (exactly how I typed it, with the asterisks haha). It got to the point where I ended up just calling my bass Killer and the name kinda stuck. It does have killer tone haha

    The song I wrote was about someone I'm not on the best of terms though... I really want to change my name but I don't know how haha

  17. What I was eating when I joined Talkbass.
  18. After weeks of deep thought, I finally came up with a very pretentious name, attempting to impress others by affecting a greater importance and talent than is actually possessed. As I border upon being a singular poseur, I desired a descriptive moniker that was showy, pretentious, ostentatious and meant to give an excessive outward purely gratuitous display of bass player vanity. (I even drew a showy, imposing and striking appearance as an icon in a vain attempt to act like I am more important or knowledgeable than I really am - which I am, of course!) Even now, as we speak, I am trying to sound intelligent by using long, complicated words, even though I don't know what they mean. In fact, I have forgotten more than I ever learned. This places me within a select group of mentally deficient basse playeurs. I dwell in concernment over left hand techniques, articulations and tetra-chordal fingering, fingerboard patterns and positions, a blend of shifting, pivoting, Simandl, Thumb-position and One Finger Per Fret hand formations, right hand plectrum, pizzicato, bowing, thumbing, "the hook" and various PIMA combinations. I use a matrix to explore the possible combinations and I guess it all went to my head as my train of thought began to de-rail in slow motion. In that frail state of mind, I derived the phrase, "string navigation"... the geometric fingerboard as compared to a transparent chessboard... the patterns of musical elements such as triads and scales as they are executed vertically and horizontally as compared to the orthogonal and diagonal moves of chess pieces, and whether there is a third dimension to the fingerboard, which I believe I have discovered, not only a third, but a fourth as well, as all triadic inversions are derived from the first... In this way, we are all String Navigators... as we strike the sails and set forth to explore the infinite possible dimensions and pathways subtended by a finite set of suspended strings!
