Tool's basslines have always been some of my favorite, but I've had issues finding bandmates to play them with. Schism is a relatively easy one as well, as long as you let it pulse and only try to count it when you have to. A lot of their shit really transcends its time signatures, so you kind of have to let go of time (which is part of what I like I think). I saw a really cool video of someone playing The Pot entirely slap style, so I've been working on that just as a technique exercise. I've never been much of a fan of picks. Aenema would definitely be a cool one to pick up for a live set.

I've never messed around with any Markbass gear - would have been nice to have those balls down low when I still played a 5-string.

I started classical piano lessons when I was 6 and did that for six years - that made everything else so much easier. Some of Beethoven's shit has bigger hand stretches than I've ever had to make on the bass. I played alto saxophone for 2 years, too. I took some jazz lessons from a Baylor student one summer - that helped more with the bass than it did with the saxophone (for school band). I think that the more instruments you can learn, the better you'll be at the ones you already play. Each thing I've played has shaped the way I make music.
