I will be the first to admit that I am really ignorant when it comes to music and talent. I can obviously tell a good singer and a good/fast lead guitarist…but really I am pretty well in the dark when it comes to a good rhythm guitarist or drummer or bassist or percussionist violin player etc.
I recently saw the Red Hot Chili Peppers in concert and in between their songs they would just kinda BS some music, and most of it was centered around Flea playing his bass…really really fast. I always knew Flea was a famous bassist (one of the few) and he obviously doesn’t suck, but I was blown away by how fast he could pluck and really think he’s amazing. Is that train of thought pretty popular in the music circles? Aside from being famous for being in a famous band, and famous for being weird, is Flea as good a bassist as I think he is?
