wasn't sure where to put this one, so I chose "miscellaneous"... I don't listen to music for the bass. I prefer to listen to songs that are well-written than songs that have a good "groove", and I usually pay more attention to the other instruments than the rhythm section. also, I only know a handful of songs on bass, because I get bored with a song if it takes me too long to figure it out. (I play by ear, I don't use tabs -- but that's another conversation entirely) if someone asked me for my favorite bassists, I'd reply with Colin Moulding and Chris Squire, just because they're in two of my favorite groups, XTC and Yes. I've never heard any of the bass "greats" like Jaco, or Victor Wooten, or whoever else. (of course, jazz bores the hell out of me, so that might be the reason for that) (actually, this may be indicative of a larger problem: I'm starting to wonder if I chose the wrong instrument. unfortunately, because I'm so lazy, it's impossible for me to change to something else.) any thoughts on this?
