i want a cd that only has bass solos.....no singing!
is there ne thing out there?
Victor Wooten's 'Show of Hands' is mostly bass solos. Good stuff.
most of marcus millers stuff
the sun don't lie
M2, his lastest lastest one
Jaco Pastorius, his self titled album,
stanley clarke, theres a few that come to mind, but i have his stuff he did with george duke, very interesting
it's a good album to show the relationship between a bassist and a drummer
the list could go on and on, just have a look, and listen
Stuart Hamm's albums. Michael Manring. Jonas Hellborg.
Adam Nitti's CDs.
You only need a few.
1. Trip Wamsley-Dancing About Architecture
2. Micheal Manring-Thonk, Towards the Center of the Night, Book of Flame.
3. Vic's Show of Hands
Ill think of some more sooner or later.
You could try our very own Steve Lawson, who has his own forum here and sells his live solo bass CDs via his website - he is also involved in a solo bass network of players. Maybe you should ask the question in his forum?
For another recommendation; my most-listened to bass-lead/solo bass CD is Franc O' Shea's : "Esprit".
Colin Hodgkinson: 'The Bottom Line'
My most-listened to bass-lead/solo bass CD is Back Door: 'Back Door'. It's the only album I listen to EVERY day.
HE'S LEFT-HANDED!!! WHAT A CURSE!!!
I feel sorry for people that play left-handed instruments because they are so rare. All of the lefties i know that play an instrument play right-handed because of it. I think lefties would even be better off if they play a right-handed instrument, but lefty, like hendrix.
"Hello, my name is Vic,
and i'm going to do a little trick,
i'm going to play my bass with out using a pick."
isn't that how it goes?
I recomend anything jaco, victor, stanley clarke...
How exactly is someone cursed by being left-handed? Colin's technique certainly doesn't suffer!
Though Hendrix's guitars were right-handed, they were strung in a left-handed position. Left-handed players would probably find it easier to learn on a left-handed instrument, I would think!
Well, there's the Bach Cello Suites played on a double bass.
Dave Larue's CD "Hub City Kid" is pretty incredible. He's got such a killer tone I had to go and buy a Spector.
Definately worth checking out - I think it's still available direct through his website

As a lefty I can positively tell you that you're totally wrong.
It's doesn't matter if you're lefty or not, you can play either left or right-handed. Both are equally hard. Lefties usually are already pretty proficient in using everything right-handed because they have no choice, e.g. scissors in kindergarten, tools, cars, etc.
Classical violinists learn right-handed no matter if they're right or left-handed.
I'd recommend playing right-handed on a right-hand instrument.
Yes - you wouldn't say that about piano would you? On most instruments I don't think it make any difference really, it's just a question of what you get used to. On trumpet, sax or even Double Bass it doesn't really matter if you're right or left handed and all serious music course expect you to play a bit of piano as well, which requires independence from both hands.
If you were doing two-handed tapping - like on a Chapman stick, then you would also have to be equally good and have finger and hand independence, so whichever way you start out is really the only determining factor.
Vic Wooten- A show of hands
The only instrument is Vic's bass.
I don't really pop in Wooten's "Show of Hands" much.. but both Jaco Pastorius's self titled album and Michael Manring's "Book of Flame" get some playtime in my stereo.
I feel sorry for righthanded people who think that
'lefties' should play righthanded.
hey, in some ways it would be nice to play left-handed - nobody coming up and saying "dude, let me play your bass."
