A bass player is what occurs when a lead guitarist wants to hold on to his position and starts to search for a guy with either lower self esteem or less ego than himself.


And there I was.

I was a pretty good bass player, but then I got depressed and lost all motivation to play anything other than video games. I do have a custom made fretless 5 string with EMG pickups. I've had several offers in the past year to join bands, so maybe I should pick it back up and get my finger strength back.

I absolutly hate listening to Geddy Lee play bass...

I can rock a bass pretty well, but have never found a decent guitar player, so I always end up having to play that.

I remember listening to them* without good headphones and couldn't hear the bass.

i never really paid any attention to the bass (the instrument), but i'm taking some youtube lessons right now.

i'm learning that it's impossible to sing and play the bass

when i was a skater in the 90ies, i felt that singing is gay anyway. i mostly listed to classic rap like public enemy, or run dmc and i liked the tracks with simple heavy beats the most. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,6, down with the king

I don't like metallica but they've got a few tracks:
Spoiler:

What I seem to like from the bass is the melody+rhytm, worthy recommendations here^. I would like to see more technical bass play to make favourites.
Wow I cannot even find another bass player I like on the net. Mostly I like bass as a piece of composition that would be shallow or hollow without.

I watched the whole concert at one point in the past. It's great. I love bootsy. His stage presence is amazing. I used to idolize the hell out of him. Also since him and Buckethead did a lot of stuff together I loved him more. I'm a total bucketbot. Their work in Praxis is some of their best work in general.

Another guy I like a lot is Victor Wooten. He knows when to shine and when to support. Perfect example of a bass player. Glad he didtched the mustache since this recording lol

This thread needs a bump!

Omar Faruk Tekbilek - Shashkin - it's a blend of modern break-beat and traditional Middle Eastern music, quite tasteful if you ask me. Kind of like DJ Shadow.


One Better - Les Claypool

Well people seem to appreciate the phat, groovy stuff that Marcus Miller does. So here's an hour of it - with Adam Agati and Louis Cato, who I think is one of the best modern jazz guitarists and drummers going around respectively. Alex Han's a pretty beastly sax player too.

a rather obvious answer, but Massive Attack's Mezzanine has a bass sound unlike any other:


Jimmy Garrison's solo is omg:


and the first 2.5 minutes or so of this track is some of my favorite music ever--oh yeah, and the bass is cool too:


edit:
Spoiler:
I believe this is the sped-up version from The Future Sound of Chicago mix (unless I listened to a slow vinyl rip), but it's still some nice programming.

As they worked, Case gradually became aware of the music that pulsed constantly through the cluster. It was called dub, a sensuous mosaic cooked from vast libraries of digitalized pop; it was worship, Molly said, and a sense of community. Case heaved at one of the yellow sheets; the thing was light but still awkward. Zion smelled of cooked vegetables, humanity, and ganja.
