Mike from Candiria is the best!!
id say mike watt
I would say that at the time, i am the best unknown bassist, of course that is just my opinion. While there may be some of you better than I, you are prob. better known as well, I haven't broken out of the basement yet.
i love the modesty
"I would say that at the time, i am the best unknown bassist,..."
that just gets me, im not trying to be an ass, im just really bored, hell, maybe he is the most talented underrated bassist, who knows.
Jason Black - Hot Water Music
I'd have to say he is the best bassist I have heard in a long time. I really wish more people knew about him and how good he is, as well as how good the entire band is.
Ryan Martini "Ryknow" from Mudvayne. He is a former Jazz fusionist who uses a super heavy funk appraoch to metal. Saw him live, and the boy has skills like nobody's buisness.
I'd have to say either Helmut Hattler or Roly Wynne.
And you haven't filled out your profile yet! Doing this might help make you more "well-known" around here.
Or do you just want to be the most unknown bassist?
Hey BassDude! You've forgotten about me!
i would say it would have to be McCartney!
People who play guitar see the beatles as an easy way to learna s they had three chords higher. Instinctively u would think oh? same with the bass but not so....paul was very,very good and i think didn't get recognised for his playing
I would have to agree, most people don't see it, but he was good, and while famous, still underrated (as a bass player) Good Pick
Bruce Lindfield, I updated my profile, sorry about that, didn't mean to not do it. I think that when I wanted to originally do it my PC kicked me off of the web in the middle of filling it out. But now it is all good.
I think that sam rivers from Limp Bizkit.
He doesn't slap and detune like Fieldy. He is strictly fingerstyle and he playes his own line more often then not.
Sam is really cool, I like his bass lines..
here are some
id say matt freeman (from operation ivy and rancid)
also i would like to point out that jaco prestor...whatever and les claypool are the most overated mofos ive ever seen
Yeah, Matt Freeman is great..I´ve never heard operation ivy, could you recommend anything?
All I have to say is that there was this Russian dude at Matt Umanov Guitars on Bleecker St in the Village.... he didn't work there or anything, and I don't even know his name.......but when I say this dude was great I mean my jaw just hit the floor......when I asked how he learned to play he said "it was the only way out of my country" I honestly think he may have been the best I have ever heard......
......if you groove it, they will come.....
Have you ever heard of Liquid Soul...a Chicago based AcidJazz/Funk outfit...Ricky Showalter is Fantabulous!
Boston's bassist(s), be it Tom Scholz (unclear whether he did the studio work or not), or Fran Sheehan, who is credited for the work. Excellent rock bass.
And Nate Mendel from Foo Fighters. Super melodic tasty lines.
And Robert DeLeo from STP. More great melodic lines.
