What bass solo or solos encouraged you early in your development to step it up a notch? Before there was a Jaco. or Victor, or Stanley, or Marcus there was a thing such as a bass solo in a recorded piece. Rarely did they get air play but some did. The two that forever changed me are still classics to this day (I'm a slapper but these solos are fingerstyle and the bomb IMO) Dennis Coffee--Scorpio (Bass solo Bob Babbitt I think) Get Ready--Bass solo. I don't know the bassist. But the group was one of the few white groups on the Motown label. What's yours???
