    I'm new to this poll thing, but who do you think (out of the choices) is the best bass player? If he or she isn't on here, feel free to post who you think is...

    Taht is a great selection of bassist, better then some peoples "best" threads, but there really is no best. Everyone can do there own thing the best. So everyone is the best, in there own way. I know its cheesey but its true.

    I guess so...
  5. Other's playing has really gone downhill. His playing on the new Buttlicker record is horrible.

    AHHHHH, yes. IT IS. Please, do a search.

    Seems all the new guys coming in don't realize they are posting about subjects that have already been discussed once or twice in the past.
    And you can't just list people and say "Who's the best". i bet half the people on here think that someone thats not even on your list is the best. there is no "Best". only different.

    and for the love of god.


    EDIT: your not a newbie! i just took it for granted! come on,,, you know how anal us tb'ers are with us and our seaches!:D

    or Geddy Lee
    or Billy Sheehan
    or Victor Bailey
    or Larry Graham
    or Will Lee

    The list is endless.... Don't worry about the 'BEST', think about whats good, and how the person got to be so good.

    These polls aren't worth the space they take up in the forum.

    My favourite player is Marcus Miller. Just because he's so complete as a musician.

    Aren't threads like this just asking for trouble?
  19. I think a better thread would have been "who is your favorite bass player". asking for us to vote who is the greatest bass player out of such a short list is really absurd. You cant really put a label on who is the greatest bass player. The greatest bass player in the world could be some dude in africa noone has heard of. The only real way to figure out who is the greatest bass player would to round up every bass player in the world (including the dead) and have the largest bass-off ever. Now THAT would be cool, impossible but cool.

    IMO, the best bass player is that dude from Africa.
