I think the real question is: why didn't you kidnap him and use him to generate electricity with a pedal operated dynamo?

the session was an hour and a half. George showed me some hand exercises and some foot stuff. Pretty much all of the stuff he showed me is on his dvd (from what i've seen on the preview and from what he's told me). After the lesson, we talked for awhile, he invited me to stay for soundcheck. They played Sarcophagus, Ramses Bringer of War, and What May Be Safely Written for sound check. After that, he came back out and we talked some more. Then I went home, and came back in time to see Nile (they were the last band on). The show was SOOOOO AWSOME. My neck hurt for the next 2 days. After the show, he came out and talked with me some more. VERY nice guy. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND meeting him if he ever comes to town, he's one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. He loves what he does, and he cares about his fans, which is pretty awesome. \m/(>.<)\m/

And yes i cut my hair hahaha.

George is way cool and he's taken double bass to new heights. Congrats and be sure to apply what you learned.
