I'm Lars Ulrich and I HATE anyone who pirates music!!! I hope all of you rot in hell and make the world a better place without your scum!
Kidding, I don't judge anyone who pirates ... contrary to what some people think of me. I used to download everything back in the day and then I eventually changed when I learned about all the hard work it takes to make a good album with good sound.
Studying music in university. I play bass, both the electric and the upright (that 6 foot thing that looks like a cello but is way cooler). I use far too many effects pedals on a bass than what would be considered normal when I get bored, but I always believe that a bassist should learn how to play normal bass before getting creative. Shredding solos are cool but they don't make you a better bassist if you can't keep a tight rhythm.
