Actor Jason Momoa's bass guitar (opens in new tab) odyssey is continuing  with the news he's got a one-to-one Primus bass lesson from Les Claypool (opens in new tab) himself. 

Visiting Claypool at his Claypool Cellars (opens in new tab) winery in Sebastopol, California (a great pinot noir, reportedly), Momoa had the honour of a low end virtuoso tutorial on 1993 Primus classic My Name Is Mud from the Pork Soda album.

My Claypool was even inspired to sit in on drums and let Momoa take on sole bass duties for a jam – high praise indeed.

The Aquaman and Game Of Thrones star has already flexed his bass chops recently when he was gifted a relic'd Fender Custom Shop P-Bass for his 41st birthday built by Master Builder Vincent Van Trigt and immediately played Flea's bassline from the Chili Peppers' version of Stevie Wonder (opens in new tab)'s Higher Ground.
