    Ok, Which bassist do you prefer to listen to? Which one moves you more? I find Mike Gorden to be a better and more musical bass player than Les Claypool and essentially want to know where other people stand.
     
  2. This belongs in the bassist forum ;) Also try a search for it, it's probably been covered.

    I like Les's creativity and witty attitude, so I'd vote for him.

    But where's the Aston Barrett option? ;)

    My appologies. I'm rather new to this forum. Won't happen again.
     
  10. I prefer listening to Cactus...of course I'm overly obsessed with Phish :D

    I love les, don't get me wrong...but I can just groove out to Gordon from here to kingdom come!
     
  11. I forgive you :D

    Dude, like how could you even say that... your Grandma plays with a pick and doesn't ever try fretless and upright and stuff

    Your Mom is WAY better.


    Oh wait, I mean.... I hate "Vs." threads and I'm in a mood so I'm closing this one. If Jay or Cass wanna open it, I'll leave it be.
