    My reference is to the Vic Wooten version (JP Big Band - Word of Mouth Revisited), although I'm sure Marcus played the p*ss out of it!

    i vote for anything that's not my cup of tea. Something that's not normally what i'd listen to (much less play) can throw me for a little while till i reset my mind.

    +1! I usually won't even reset my mind...life's too short to play music I can't stand.

    Anything by The Strokes.


    Oh no wait, I'm lying!!!

    On a more serious note though, I wouldn't want to try a lot of the stuff by John Myung. He's the only real six-string bass player that comes to mind quickly and the way he drifts over the fretboard just overwhelmes me. His strecthes are sick!!!

    What is this?

    I thought we were all gear whores

    And now you tell me you know SONGS Wtf!

    See, I can't even do Master Blaster at 130 bpm live! That my fiends is an acceptable level of incompetence for a gear whore.

    Our drummer wanted to play something by a band called fourplay, and that stuff was also crazy.

    All shat stuff Wyzard of Mothers Finest did in the 70's is also out of the question. We do Mickeys Monkey, and I'm fakin' for my life.

    About LaRue/Myung/pastorius/Wooten/Dickens and others: I heed the advice "Don't try this at home, the musicians performing are well-trained professionals supervised by a paying audience."
    bovinehost: Yes, I do agree with that, but if there's nothing wrong then there's nothing wrong.
    Beth: I would compare Bongo to Tommy Lee Jones. Bad a$$ and just hot in a weird way...
    cheezewiz: They should take their lace thongs off and play bass.

    But back then, we didn't have one of those CD players where you can change the pitch. That would've made the difference just being able to pick the notes out.

    I wore out the pause and rewind buttons on my old cassette deck trying to learn Yes and King Crimson stuff, lol.

    And, in the meantime, Bugs Henderson (hey Chuck, he and Jim were buddies) is no longer on the earth.
