Well all the other metal bassists just play what the guitar plays.

No, first get off his case, if your going to prove someone wrong or bring up a point, make sure youve got it right first.

that isnt true man, come on how about Lars from spiral architect, his lines are sometimes like the guitars but most of the time completely different( in the same key.

In the band im in I play different bass parts half of the time, and guitar parts the other half.

Dont get me wrong John Myung is freaking awesome. I even sketched a picture of him once for art class.

am i just stupid or something! it seems like im always getting chewed out on here. I thought forums let you voice your opinion on a subject not get made fun of or corrected every time the moderator doesnt like what you say

Not to say our moderator isnt cool, but get off my back!!!!!!!!

As for Anthrax and Among the Living: an amazing CD all around, but especially the bass lines. I think he does the same thing as Webster (albeit 20 years earlier...lol) and just turns up the gain a bit. Overdriving the pre-amp section of your head will give you that sound, but if you overdo it, it'll sound like shit...not to mention sending a square-wave signal to your speakers, causing the voice coil to jump the magnetic gap and blowing your speaker cab...(speaking from experience here...grrrrrr)

Cheers.


I gotta agree man, Alex Webster ALWAYS has an amazing tone, on every album AND live Cliff Burton had some nice growly tones too [RIP]
