p-tuck p-tuck tuck punk, bink bink bink p-tunny p-tick;

Isn't that 'Good Times' by Chic?

Surely the many Bass players on this forum are not going to let Youngwasp get away with slandering the name of the late great Bernard Edwards? :shock: Did Bernie ever Ptuck ptink put put ?

I don't believe Mr Wasp accused anyone of 'ptink put put' You appear to be putting words into his mouth (or fingers at least)

On the other hand, I could give a flying duck what Chic did, nasty, nasty, nasty...and indeed, poo.

Didnt Bernie also session on Bowies 'China girl' ? or was it 'Lets dance' ?

Can't say anything negative about Bowie or the missus will slap me but the songs you mentioned were IMhumbleO possibly the lowest ebb of his epic career, so yeah, quite possibly.

Back to the German, I actually enjoyed the listen as well as the watch, strangely enough. Anyhoo, typing "Mark King solo" into youtube always produces this sort of bass guff:

Now, it's true; I can't play it. But, I can't hang Rowenta irons from my nipples like some guys can on stage. And I don't want to. Painful and pointless.

:lol: Classic

BTW, Bernie Edwards, and Good Times in particular, defines proper funk bass. I meant to put that one in the fave bass riffs thread. If you watch him playing (or indeed listen), his thumb stays well away from the strings. I don't object to a bit of thumb per se, but it just doesn't feature in the track. Bernie had the annoying habit of making rather tricky passing runs and quick bends look effortless.

Pure groove, he goes in my top 5 bass players.

Yeah, ok, Bernie can play.

I just like poking people with my metophorical stick and seeing if they bite. It's a sick, sick hobby of mine...

Poke, poke and indeed poke again...
