I have been a percussionist for 25 years. I always wanted to play bass. I am originally from Chicago, IL. Some bass players that have always astounded me would be, in no particular order: Ron Carter, Steve Harris, Noel Redding, Jaco, anyone who played with Zappa, Flea, and Cliff Burton. I am buying a bass this week and feel the best tone I ever heard was from a '65 Fender Jazz bass. Looking forward on this new adventure and discussing music in general and more specifically bass guitar.
