Here’s Kim Deal talking about the difference between her own style and that of “real” bass players: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCPy_57z4_w 0 High Five mockcarr says: 02/08/2012 at 8:55 am She’s very proud of being boring. 0 High Five dr john says: 02/08/2012 at 11:22 am Deal is not claiming that she’s boring. She’s saying that she avoids overplaying. 0 High Five mockcarr says: 02/09/2012 at 8:11 am The bass in that song is boring. It establishes no appropriate backdrop, counterpoint, conduit between rhythm and melody, nor groove or mood as far as I’m concerned. Deal expounds on her minimalistic approach compared to what some mythical other “real” bass player might have done. That is also boring. Me having to explain all this to you, is more boring still. 0 High Five Rick Massimo says: 02/09/2012 at 2:13 pm Kim Deal is the reason a whole generation of bands has grown up thinking they don’t need a bass player. Avoiding overplaying is not something to be proud of in and of itself. Put, I don’t know, an oboe in my hands, teach me how to play the note that’s the key the song is in and I’ll do a tremendous job of not overplaying. I’ll non-overplay the shit out of that thing. Does that make me a great, or even a good, oboe player? 0 High Five Bobby Bittman says: 02/10/2012 at 12:39 am Kim’s kinda coming across as an alterna-asshole. 0 High Five hrrundivbakshi says: 02/10/2012 at 1:52 pm Massimo shoots — he SCORES! 0 High Five hrrundivbakshi says: 02/10/2012 at 1:55 pm The main reason Metallica dude is having trouble is because he’s DISTRACTED BY THE 63 PEDALS HE NEEDS TO MAKE HIS GUITAR SOUND LIKE buzzzzzzz. 0 High Five Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
