This thread is an excuse to copy a lame joke from a thread like this on a different forum.

"I use fingers because my girlfriend said it chafes when I use a pick"

Aren't they just lazy guitarists?

Except Les Claypool...I'd suck his dick and I'm not even that way, you know.

Uh...I was just having a bit of a nostalgic moment for the Pixies/Primus/Jane's Addiction concert I went to.
Carry on...

Les Claypool is pretty amazing.

I doubt I'd go as far as you though, BGH ;)

Is he the primus guy? He is amazingly fast and complicated. I saw them once.
He's not what I'd want in my band though.

I'm amazingly slow and complicated. Don't know about my bass playing skills ...

He plays a 6 string fretless bass like he made a pact with the devil. On pure audio, I really didn't care for Primus...but when I actually saw him up there slapping that thing like there was no tomorrow and spouting his funny rap at the same time...my lord, that was a sight to behold.
But he definitely couldn't pull that off in many other arrangements.

The bass is my favourite instrument. My favourite bass player is Errol "Flabba" Holt.

WRONG
Bass is not an instrument
