I sure hope you were kidding about Fieldy being a good bass player! If you weren't, let me clarify a few things for you. Fieldy is not only a sucky bass player, he is a MISERABLE bass player. I know my collegues would agree with me on this one. Few players I know that wear their bass down to their dick have any music sense about them at all. Tone-wise, Fieldy might be able to pull off a slap riff or too...then again, so can Victor Wooten...the only exception is that Victor can pull it off in any scale, any mode, any style you put in front of him. With Fieldy, the only thing you hear is the "pop", and no pitch! The only way I've heard Fieldy pull it off is in the rock style in minor pentatonic, harmonic minor, dorian, and locrian, and chances are good that he doesn't even know what those are. One thing you have to realize is that there is a difference between being a rocker and a musician...some people are both. Fieldy is not. Fieldy is a rocker, and nothing but. His sound ain't special...it's just that his tone sucks.
You can wear your bass down to your dick,
You can play bass guitar with a pick,
But if you want to play that stick,
You gotta play more than a lick,
And not just head-bang like a prick,
And do it to pick up a chick,
'Cause the groove is what makes the bass player kick.
Fieldly may have his signature bass with his signature sound,
but that don't make him a signature bass player.
Here's to the REAL bass players!
