    Flea is a phenom. After viewing that, I am even more amazed that he is a self-taught musician.

    He may be the greatest living bassist, but the greatest bass player ever was Jaco Pastorious of the jazz group Weather Report. He makes Flea look like an amateur.

    Actually, I can play alot faster. I've played bass guitar and string bass for 10 years now, and I can play that fast, and even a little faster, but I gotta say, he's got some good talent.

    i think you will all agree with the fact that you dont need lessons to be good at anything you just need the resources
