Are that many guys here obsessed with technicality, regarding playing? I found this forum trying to learn alittle about fieldy. There also seems to be dislike towards flea. I dont know, why, I read the replys, but people still miss the idea that music is about music not technique. I ve been playing guitar for 10 or so years and still find writing exponentially harder than learning and perfecting techniques. Even if these guys could jam like wooten, would it fit the style of the bands like korn or RHCP? i dont get it? Anyways Im new here, and relativly new to bass. Its alot more fun than I though, I was disappointed to "downgrade" to bass, lack of decient bass players, but am now happy to have switched. Anyways this mentality discourages me from contributing to the forums. I went though this stuff with RX-7 forums, mazdas. Haters, people flapping thier mouths about stuff they dont know. typical forum stuff. I hope musicians are more open minded and more polite than the "racers" and "mechanics", ie kids, that frequent the forums Im used to.
