As a bassist, I mainly play in a rock or classic rock style but as a music lover, I thrive on a steady diet of vintage jazz, blues, R&B, soul, and funk with the occasional dash of old school C&W and rockabilly thrown in for good measure. Although I may never play in some of these styles, I find that their repeated exposure influences my playing in a vast number of direct and indirect ways.
