Not to strike an argumentative tone, because I understand your point, but I have to disagree with this sentiment. I think the point here is that the dude appreciates that guy’s slap style and tone as much as or more than other “better” slappers. I know for a fact that my favorite anything is not that which I deem to be “best” or “fanciest”, and that pretty much applies to all of tastes, not just bassists. There is a weird type of stereotyping that happens with slap bass. People seem to see simpler lines as uninteresting, yet the super technical stuff is seen as nonmusical wanking.
