Are there any bands that you know of using two bass players. The group I mess around with from time to time decided to use 2 bassists tonight in order to pull off some funk and jazz style riffs. I thought it sounded great. One bass took to playing the groove of things and I played a pop \ slap style. At first I didn't think we could pull it off, but we did. Two guitars, 2 basses, and a set of drums.
