I'm not really a huge Claypool fan, but when he just breaks out the funk, like he does with this cover of The Awakening (the original by The Reddings), it's damned impressive. I like how he drops it down into a minor mode. The original is 80's superfunk. Claypool's has a totally different feel, even though the patterns are all the same. Very cool.
All bassists should aspire to learn this jam.
