The Roots

#1 Post by jmchambers5 » Wed Jun 25, 2003 8:00 pm

Does anyone else here listen to the roots? Im listening to them right now, and some of their stuff is just absolutely groovey as crap. I started listening to them a while back because i wanted to get into some hip-hop bass style ( i like to be versatile, and what kind of bassist can't do a good hip-hop groove), and i was just blown away, this stuff makes me want to dance, and i hate dancing.

Yeah I'm a big fan of the Roots too, they were/are a nice change from the norm playing with a live band, fave song 'Do You Want More?!!!??!' off album of the same name.

Cheers
Mark.
