Yes, I do consider myself to be an OK bassist - for what I want to play.
There's millions better than me.
There's millions worse as well.
So what?
I am who I am and I'm happy to be who I am and play what I can.

NHOP was quite amazing, most players can't get that kind of dexterity on an electric.....and he does that on upright, crazy.

Yikes...... that's stunning.
I think the important thing to remember is you may play like poos compared to that, but still have just as much fun.

Playing like that, and staring aimlessly into the crowd likes he's totally distracted by something else. Yes, that is jealousy talking!
