    Besides Jack Bruce. I also mean straight blues. Does anyone know of any bassist that played the blues but also sang lead vocals or co-lead vocals? I've been really considering giving singing a shot while playing bass because I can't find anyone at my young twenties age rage that wants to play solid blues or even sing blues. And I will feel so cool once I can start to sing along while I play slow walking blues haha. Thanks!

  3. Hmmm...great question. I'm at a loss to think of anyone beyond Jack Bruce, so I'll be following this too!

    James Dewar - Robin Trower.
    Check out "Bridge of Sighs"
    There's some great bluesy singing and playing, although Trower was known as a rock guitarist.

    Check out Danielle Schnebelen from Trampled Under Foot, one of my favorite singers these days.
  7. Me! Ha ha, just kidding but I'm working on it too. Blues is a good place to start because after a while the fingers can just go on automatic pilot making the singing and playing together a lot easier.
