    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.

    I'm a huge fan of our implementation of BYOD. They give us a $250 allowance for a new phone (and related accessories) every two years, and $80/month toward our bill.

    I'm pretty interested in checking out one of the CODE keyboards when they become available with the clears. They say early April on the site, so I'm hoping for an update soon.

    I admit my keyboard is marginally louder than everyone else's , but I don't think my clickity-clack is any more annoying than the cloppity-clop of membrane keyboards. They sound like muffled recordings of spastic horses on cobblestone.

    I admire your about me message, and totally agree. Although not very old myself, I've always shared the same understanding.
