    A wild way to start the day, for sure. Some great music and great players.

    God Bless Jeff Beck, too. Consistently mind-blowing.

    Yes, but not as bad as the who is the best bass player thread that pops up a few times a week.

    I'm blown away by her looks (hey, no shame in admitting that she's hot. :p), but I'm even more impressed with her style and musicianship. She's playing the living crap out of the instrument. AND, she can play jazz, rock, and whatever the heck Jeff Beck throws at her. She's an impressive musician.

    Still, there are fewer Tal threads than Cliff Burton threads by a country mile.:D

    I've always heard that it's the player, not the bass that makes the music great ;)

    I noticed that! She really seems to use his techniques a lot, including in her solo jazz stuff. I wonder if she's a big Jaco fan...

    No but Sadowsky puts their knobs in predictable places.
    I just noticed this thread is from the stone age.
    Sorry...
