When Greg plays bass he kinda swings back n forth. honestly i think it looks kool so i tried it. it was kinda difficult to play and i got sick from all the swinging around lol. ive never seen any other bass player do that its cool, and i was thinking is it to keep beat or...?

I think he does it just so it doesn't look like he's just standing there because he doesnt jump around like Dexter or Noodles. Well except that one time. I dunno but that's like his trademark bass stance. :cool:

Personally i think its to keep time cause its very rhythmical. But it could be Greg K's Way of bouncing around in a Greg K kindda way if that makes sense.


No i confused myself as well.

At least he's not standing there.

Noodles has a lot of energy waving his head around, jumping sometimes, walking around on stage and shit.

Atoms a great energetic drummer, he always looks mad.

Dexter sings well, plays guitar well and usually just gives off a good vibe.

So i mean like if Greg were to stand there he'd seem totally out of place, it's a pretty awesome sway i might add, i can't do it well while playing bass :p

well for whatever reason, it works for him so i never really questioned it. but it would be totally awesome to see him start jumping around on stage lol. the other guys have great energy on stage and so i think he kind of balances things out alittle, so theres not a bunch of guys spaz-ing out on stage lol.

It that back 'n' forth thing the "Greg K Dance" people refer to? I was just wondering coz That's the only thing he appears to do on stage (apart from playing bass) By the way dude above me, I've fallen in love the word spaz-ing! I go spastic all the time, I always act like I've had too much red cordial.

I tried it once, I can do it without a bass, I understand the fundamentals, but when it comes to having a bass in my hands, I can't do it.
