TOOL’s Justin Chancellor Shows You How To Play The “Aenima” Bassline


In a band full of mysterious and cryptic characters who eschew the limelight, Justin Chancellor is a surprisingly open and informative person. He seems to be the primary source of updates about the band’s inner workings, and in this clip, he teaches the readers of Bassiste Magazine how to play the band’s hit “Aenima” on the bass. That shirt he’s wearing – is he trolling Glenn Fricker? Is that a Rule#2 reference? I guess I’ll have to ask him if I ever meet him. Til then, happy thumping!

I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
