    Thank you. As a lover of minor key "depressing" hard rock and metal, this was quite enjoyable and entertaining. Love how your face remains serious through the "happy" music. Earns you a subscribe. Great job!

    Hahaaa I loved "harvester of joy" I can already picture it in my mind, being used for some morning coffee advert. Gotta say, very well done. Many on youtube go for this type of video but yours is BY FAR the best.

    Jimmy Page once said that 'Rock n Roll is just Country Western music w distortion"... Exhibit A Notice how Enter Sandman, by far the biggest hit, sounded good even without distortion? If the music relies on production to sound good, then it's not a really good song. Great music sounds great no matter what instrument you play it on.

  • RK Productions

    You just listed all the main songs bassist literally need to learn before moving onto scales. Anyone. Wanting to play bass, was because of those songs. I agree SOME of them you hear way to often and DO burn my ears when I hear them. But muse, RATM, and chilli peppers??? That's a bassist near their prime. Not everyone is victor wooten.

    i don’t care about who does and doesn’t like tool, it doesn’t matter. but saying all Tool songs sound the same is like saying all Metallica songs sound the same. It’s literally called a musical style.
