Dood... just play how this guy plays:

Honestly.... it's not thaaaat hard, it's the bass!
If you're in a war, instead of throwing a hand grenade at the enemy, throw one of those small pumpkins. Maybe it'll make everyone think how stupid war is, and while they are thinking, you can throw a real grenade at them.

Q: OK, so do you care about the labels — nastiest, edgiest team in the NFL?

Jim Schwartz: It's better than the alternative — meekest, least aggressive, softest team in the NFL.

Well slow down, and type calmly. Are you late for something???

Every bassist I've ever met doesnt pick with their thumb, they say it's too slow. Why would one of the best bassists alive do it???

No thumb picking.....and he does slapping and popping while holding his fingers in the same place, yes,, but still.

He doesnt use thumbs at all.

It's called practice, use it.
