    al right, to your opinion, which bassist would you like to see in an instructional video (Like Entwistle, Wooten, Sheehan, Hamm and many more have done in the past).

    ok, i would REALLY like to see a video of Marcus Miller... explain slap bass and many other techniques he uses... i still dont know why haven't he done this but im waiting for it!

    also a video from Les Claypool... he might not be the best man to explain theory but i guess it would be a fun video to watch and if he explained flamenco strum and some other slap techs it would be great.

    so, how about yours?

    I know someone is gunna say so it might as well be me. I want to see a Fieldy vid!

    I wouldnt mind see a Claypool video, that would be very interesting and maybe even educational.

    Ryan Martinie...on just how the hell you use GCGCF...
  5. I'm really with the Claypool idea... we should write him a letter. Hmmm maybe Justin from Tool could teach me how to use effects...

    What bout Zandertard?We all can learn something from him!

    I think it should be "John Turner's Bass Method for 7 Stringers and Beyond!"

    I'd like to see Will Lee and Tony Levin so they can talk about what the studio musician/touring pro gig is like.

    There are a ton of videos about technique, but little to none about the business-y side of things.

    nice list there Boplicity!

    but i found that Dave Larue does have a video called: Dave LaRue - Essential Bass Concepts

    they say its rare to find one, they sell it on
  15. I think it would be fun to see a fieldy instructional video..
    But I would really like to see one from a Michael Manring. I think there´s is one already but I´ve found nothing about it.

    A Les Claypool video would be cool, but I don't see it happening anytime soon...

    Two that haven't been mentioned yet - Arne Livingston of The Living Daylights and/or Eric Langlois of Cryptopsy.
