Come on man, lets not go over the top. Everyone has different tastes, and by stating that so and so "is the greatest ever" isn't conducive to a nice mature, structured discussion.

Personally, Gary Willis is much like Steve Bailey for me. A lot of flash, but not much substance. But hey, thats only my opinion ;)

Well everything someone says regarding how good someone is, is all just opinion in the end, I guess.
When you say "not very good at this" are you referring to AS?

Gary is a very interesting player, quite a unique approach to technique.
I have watched a few of his "floating thumb" instructional you tubes. kind of makes sense for right arm muscles

I meant the info about the bassists and his techniche is awesome and does sound like it would be very ergonomic and great for your wrists,hands,arms etc.
