As a bass player, I’m a bit jelly of Jason Momoa, as he recently got to get a bass lesson from one of the greatest players of all time: Primus’ Les Claypool.

The actor, who starred in “Aquaman,” recently took a trip to Claypool’s California wine cellar. While he was hanging out, Claypool taught Momoa how to play the bass line for Primus’ track “My Name Is Mud.”

I mean, Momoa didn’t actually play the whole bass line, from what we can see from footage. But, it was still cool.

Primus posted the video of the bass lesson, plus a clip of the two playing together with Claypool on drums and Momoa on bass, on Instagram. New the post below.

Claypool was set to tour North American this year on Primus’ Rush tribute tour, but the trek was pushed into 2021 due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
