  1. ok you're all gonna hate me for this ("just pick up a guitar you ******* ******** *****") but are there any bassists who play bass but shred through their strings as a solo. i saw john myung do a solo like that but it was only for about 20 seconds.

    I HAVE EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR:
    http://www.billysheehan.com/audio/Billy Sheehan - Bass Solo 2.mp3

    It's obviouly Billy Sheehan playing the bass as fast as a guitar solo...

    i dont like that solo that much but it's a nice example of what you asked.

    Also John Myung does this same thing in two songs (AFAIK) "Dance of eternity" and "Ytsejam"
