Has anybody else noticed that some people think a bassplayer is good because he is more audible than what they are used to? I find some of the most brilliant basslines are the ones you have to listen carefully for. Whenever the untrained ear hear a solo part that just consists of bass, they tend to think that that bassplayer is excellent even if the solo is just root notes that are not accompanied by guitar done by a mediocre bassist. This is just a little thing I noticed with friends and family. I'm sure some peoples opinions would be otherwise.
