    Well if we listened, we would have heard him, and then he wouldn't be the best bass player we've never heard, thus negating your post. You wouldn't want us to do that to you, would you? ;)

    i wouldnt say he is that good
    sure he can play notes, but nothing impressive

    The bass is okay I guess. They remind me of Hum on speed, but without the harmonies and the melodicness. Or is it melodiousness? How about melodicicity?

    Unfortunatly, that recording doesn't do him justice. Live he's a different animal.

    He is the best at the style he plays, IMO.

    and faster than anyone I've seen.

    i disagree
    although he is s good bassist the best bassist iv'e heard would be Matthew from the punk group RANCID
    one song in particular maxwell murder has an awsome solo
    i highly recommend that u listen to it.
    have fun:D

    John Myung from Dream Theater - his speed is simply mesmerizing.

    John Myung easily whoops all the competition in speed, knowledge, and dexterity. John Myung makes it look easy. And he plays Metal(prog Metal)!

    I think Michael Anthony would by far beat John Myung as far as any kind of speed or playing or technique goes.

    The guy that Psobecke posted about is in Seratonin. Michael Anthony is the bass player from Van Halen, who I must add has never once displayed (at least on any albums I've heard) speed or technique even remotely close to Myung when he's going to town.

    I hope chris griffiths was being sarcastic about the Michael Anthony thing, even though "Runnin' With The Devil" is a bit of a stretch for some of us...
     
  15. Check out Keith Horne. He's by far my fave.

    Just about everyone on TalkBass knows of Victor Wooten. They were talking about the fastest player of that particular style, which Vic doesn't play. And I think Chris Griffiths was making a joke that I didn't get at first (I didn't see his smiley until just now) about Michael Anthony. At least I hope he was.

    Les Claypool is also alright.. A little weird in his playing style, but alright.
     
  20. ugh. needs less math, more rock.

    that bass player is not particularly good, either. not bad, but didn't make my ears prick up or anything.
