John Patitucci, Matthew Garrison, Janek Gwizdala, Dominique diPiaza, Steve Disgiorgio, Victor motherfucking Wooten, ALEX WEBSTER, Eric Langlois, Francois Mongrain, Steve Cloutier, Les Claypool, Bootsy Collins, Jeff Berlin, the list is fucking huge.

Stephan Fimmers - Inspired me to really pursue four finger picking.

Derek Boyer - I love his tone, and just watching him play. In my opinion he's one of the most stylish musicians out there. The way he plays the bass vertically half the time and down low. I saw Suffocation the other night and half of the entire show I was just watching him.

Come on dudes, wheres the love for Dominic "Forrest" Lapointe!? The guy is a wizard on bass, easily the best i've ever seen. My other favorites include, but aren't limited to: Stephan Fimmers, Alex Webster, Erlend Casperson, Derek Boyer, Rainer Landfermann, Jaco Pastorius, Francois Mongrain, Steve Digiorgio, Sean Malone, CLIFF BURTON, ChaotH, and Murray Fitzpatrick.

edit: bassed (pun intended?!) on the videos ive seen, i really want to add Mikey Flores to this list, but untill I can actually hear him he will have to remain an honorable mention. Hopefully the new Origin cd will change this.

I've always thought playing like that is fucking rediculous. You just end up looking like you are in KoRn.

Me too, but I didn't know we had so many bassplayers untill the Musician Central was up. Look at all the bassthreads, I was afraid it would be just a guitarist place, but in fact it didn't.

Did you see Primus at UCSD like a year ago? Such a fucking good show.

GrindYourMind 11-18-2007 04:34 PM

No, I actually didn't even know it was going on until people were talking about it the next day. I dropped the ball on that one.

GrindYourMind 11-18-2007 04:35 PM

Oh yeah...

TREVOR DUNN!>!>!(@(!

stabwound 11-18-2007 04:41 PM

Word, Trevor Dunn is def. one of my favorites.

GrindYourMind 11-18-2007 04:43 PM

The entirety of Mr. Bungle - Mr. Bungle is pretty much bass perfection.

stabwound 11-18-2007 04:50 PM

Another amazing player is Jean Baudin of Nuclear Rabbit.

Jean's Myspace is a clusterfuck of amazing bassists. Yves Carbonne is brilliant. I just don't like this new idea that more strings = more talent.

Well, it does take a lot of skill and practice to master a 13 string bass, and nuclear rabbit just rule.

GrindYourMind 11-18-2007 05:15 PM

But they should be getting the recognition for this skill and practice not the "omg" factor of their fingerboard width.

Erland 11-18-2007 06:06 PM

Victor Wooten pretty much sums it all up for me. Probably the best allround player out there.

Defleshuary 11-18-2007 06:21 PM

No Steve Harris love? Dude is absurdly tight and an amazing song writer.

stabwound 11-18-2007 06:29 PM

Yeah, Steve Harris is the man.

luciodeath 11-18-2007 08:45 PM

Wooten is good. I dont dig his compositions though.
I like the stuff he did with Greg Howe and Mike Stern.
Sakurai is good too, anyone know him?

That and he only wrote around 90% of the greatest songs ever written by the greatest band ever.

don't say stupid shit bro.
playing an instrument is not only sitting and practicing patterns for hours and hours.
Harris is the man. Listen to Killers and realize that album is from 1981. That was something totally new and diferent. Harris is one bassist who managed to develop his own style. There is not a lot of bassists who did that...
