Can you guys point me toward blues bassists who don't just play the sterotypical blues lines?
Roscoe Beck. More jazz influenced lines. Any of his work with Robben Ford would be good, especially the first Blue Line CD.
Eric Czar with Joe Bonamassa
+++ 1000 on Eric Czar
Watch this and see
... He is Badd Azzz
What is a non-stereotypical blues bass line - some thing thats not really blues? I dont really get the question?
Can someone point me towards a rock band that doesn't use distortion?
The "stereotypical" blues lines are one of the most identifiable attributes of blues music. But if pressed, I gotta go with Roscoe Beck too.
Jerome Arnold who played with Butterfield
That he is and that ATK sounds beastly!
I also love the old school(!) Hartkes
Johnny B. Gayden brought some gospel and funk vocabulary into Albert Collins stuff.
(Yeah, I know Gospel and Funk start with the blues, but you know what I mean )
Snapper Mitchum,from Son Seals' band.
Check out Lucky Peterson's 'Black Midnight Sun' CD, Bill Laswell produced and played bass on it, a little different take on the form.
Lucky Peterson always has killer bassist on his CDs.
As I see it "blues" is an on-going and evolving music ... atleast it is here!
... IMO way too many folks think it still fits a 1959 model
Jack Bruce with Cream.
Ahh, here we go!
Noel and Kenny Neal Check out Carey Bell cd's
Johnny B. Gayden everybody on Alligator Records pretty much
Calvin "Fuzz" Jones see him on maxwwell st in blues bros. movie, played with everybody in chicago blues.
Dave Mayers ( 3 aces )
theres so many more. Nothing wrong with a stereo typical blues line. Its NOT the notes..its in the way you play it.
Nathan East (with E. Clapton). Cool lines & great job
