Chameleonic. Modest.

oh can I nick that? I think if you saw me playing with my old band you'd have thought I was a bit of a show off. If you saw me playing with a folk/country act you'd think I was under-stated and wonder why I'd brought a 6 string (don't have any 4s or 5s). If you saw me with my new metal band you'd think I was mental and perhaps even obnoxious etc. etc. You can't have the same style for every genre/group you play in

Failed Guitarist here too. Pick playing, far too many notes, far too fast and far too loud.
The way I figure, if you are constantly playing away from the root notes and adding melodic tension, then you can claim that whatever you just played wrongly as deliberate...

Not sure 'style' is an appropriate way to describe my playing.

Aggressive, hamsfisted, hyperactive bludgeoning.

The object being to fit as many notes into as little time as possible in order that the wrong ones pass more quickly. This doesn't always work, but as they're my own basslines I will always insist it's intentional, and if it sounds wrong - you [i]just don't get it[/i]. Man.

According to a couple of punters on more than one occasion - "Paul Simonon in a country band".

According to me - "Alright... for the shape I'm in!"

I hate using text-message-speak, but I'm sitting on public transport and that did, quite literally, make me laugh out loud.

I'd say that my playing is quite simple and solid. Not the most inspiring, but with good time and groove. I try to make it sound as if the 'main notes' are being played by the bass-drum.
