bassists you would like to see use a certain bass...

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by f'nar f'nar, Aug 5, 2005.

  1. Ok, so we all know what basses our favourite bassists use. But has anyone ever thought, hey, I wonder what that song would sound like on another bass?

    Personally, I would like to hear some Ryan Martinie with a Ric, it would be cool, or even a Stingray (I love both the tones.)

    I would also like to see alot of my favourite songs done on an 8 or 12 string (grouped strings) just to see what that would be like.
  2. I'd love to hear Geddy on a Sadowsky and a Stringray. :cool:

    i want martinie to play on that 'dulla buzz more
  4. i would like to see some of those jazz guys who are amazing on 4 strings, like marcus or jaco play an ERB (although the latter is a little impossible now) and i'd also like to see the opposite...the guys who are amazing on ERB play 4 strings just to see what they would play

    How about Mingus beatin' on an old P bass?

    Visually, I want to see Juan Nelson play one of the original Steinbergers. I think that would look really funny.

    i actually have seen stephen lessard play on a flea bass, it was weird looking.
    flea-a zon fretless, or a warwick thumb, his sound would be completly different
    les claypool- a wal
    justin chancellor-a mexican fender p :D
    ryan martinie- an ibenez k5 (fieldy custom)
    fieldy- a standard tuned american fender jazz through an swr with flat eq. heh

  12. From some of your recordings Matt, I think you'd sound cool on a Chapman Stick . If of course you could figure it out, I played one once and it confused the hell outta me.

    I would have loved to see Entwistle on a fretless! Think of the intro to "Love Aint for Keeping"......

    As it is, I just saw a DVD on JPJ playing a fretless (maple fingerboard, I think) Precision...he was pretty good, too! (understatement)
