Any good "modern" bassist
ive been looking through the web to search for awesome songs to learn but its always the same band/bassist people are recommending (not that theres nothing wrong with them) and the common trend is that their all from the 60's to the 80's. I know music was at the peak at that time and now its kinda going down hill but i was wondering if there are any good modern bassist out there who are from the 90's to now.
so far bassists i like from that time are
Christopher Wolstenholme (muse)
Tim Commerford (rage against the machine)
Ben Kenney (incubus)
Nick O'Malley (arctic monkey)
Stuart Zender (jamiroquai)
please is there are any more let us now and link some songs by them :)
That's obviously a tricky question, because nobody can agree what a good bassist is. My philosophy is: the one who plays what's good for the music involved. It can be chops-intesive guy like say Larry Graham, but also a solid root player, dare I say, Dee Dee Ramone. Wish is, of course, a matter of taste. A recent bass player that has really impressed me is Thundercat, who plays with a lot of leftfield R&B acts like Flying Lotus and also has a really nice solo work. Check out:
I have always loved the raw power from Nick Oliveri, and I guess now it is Michael Shuman from QOTSA... both are great. Jack Lawrence is also cool.
Dave Meros from Spock's Beard
I asked the same thing, more or less, many weeks ago. I feel the same way, i feel like great inspiring bass playing barely exists anymore in more modern musicians. And im not even of those who thinks moden music sucks. I just havent been thrilled by modern bassists much at all. Like 35 and under. Mid you my thread was more specific and asked in the general genres of pop and rock.
You guys must be listening to the wrong music....
There are tons of great bassists out there.
Jeff Caxide - Isis
Juan Alderete - Mars Volta
Dan Briggs - Between the Buried and Me
Brian Cook - Russian Circles/Botch/These Arms are Snakes
Nate Newton -Converge
Jack Donovan - Elder
Evan Danielson - Mouth of the Architect.
Check out the redneck manifesto, not sure the guys name but they rock
Jamareo artis- bruno mars
This guy is awesome.....he even has a thread. Lol.
My first thought was Esperanza Spalding especially like this live clip I Know You Know. But then again it is a modern take on classic jazz sooo... Hmm?...
Dan Briggs from between the buried and me/trioscapes.
Check out this band called intronaught as well, not sure of the guys name but he's fantastic.
And I guess saying Les would be redundant. But if you have somehow missed primus then check them out.
Don't know his name off the top of my head, but the bass playing in Streetlight manifesto is amazing.
Also if we are qualifying modern as '90's and later, there is a wealth of bassists (or at least bass lines) to choose from:
Alice in chains (underrated bass playing imo)
NIN (not one bassist, but some creative bass lines nonetheless)
At the drive in
Just to name a few..
You should check out STP's Robert DeLeo. Very melodic player
Coheed and Camria's Mic Todd
i agree people have different opinion on what is considered as great bassist.
and yeah ive completely forgot Queen of the stone age and primus
sorry Milk i shouldlve checked the forum before posting the thread and yeah the genre can be anything you want, just a great bassist that have appeared recently
the bassist for bruno mars is amazing, ive never really listen to those kind of music, id be more into it if there was more great bassist like him
thankyou Auspex for the list of bands, i'll check them all out
if theres more please keep them coming :)
Matt Wong - Reel Big Fish
Roger - Less than Jake
Joe Gittleman - The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
Geddy Lee is still on tour.
Joe Dart - Vulfpeck
Ben's an ex-guitarist that was added to the band, essentially, because he doesn't make waves and just follows the guitar parts.
Also have to second the "weird to have the mention this, but um, Les Claypool from Primus" sentiment. Even if you don't personally love his style, he was pretty influential in perpetuating the slap/pop/strum stuff.
