    What a wonderful and articulate analogy you used with the "lite-bright rendition of an oil painting". That was spot on my opinion

    I'm actually doing a cover of one of his tunes in this series of Cover videos I'm doing... It's going to be a fun piece to put out =):shred:

    Add Pig Destroyer to the list of bassless (teehee) bands. I think they sound awesome, though admittedly they aren't trying to replace the bass with a guitar or anything, they just... don't have one, and IMO, don't need one.

    I think substitute might be a little much... Maybe a reasonable approximation. The role is accomplished but is lacking the ingenuity of a bass player. There are tons of bass-less acts out there, as we have already discuss, but there remains no real substitute for a bass player... aside from another bass player.

    What do you mean "the ingenuity of a bass player"?

    Anyway Frank Vignola is a great musician.

    Compare the bass on a punk or thrash record with the bass on a jazz record.

    That's not ingenuity, though.
