Sorry to resurrect this topic - I know there's a similar one floating around somewhere, but I thought some people might be interested to see this:
Yes, I know I once called Mark King the most-overrated bass player ever, but boy, can the man slap! If anyone out there likes Wooten, then they'll like this.
Did anyone ever listen to Mark King's Bass Solo Live at Wembley?
You can get it on Napster.
It's awesome because you must realize how fast he's slapping!
BTW, Jaco ---> da good bassman!
You can see the video of that solo by clicking:

David, thanks for those links!
What a wanker, though..
Ah the beauty of NAPSTER...I found a Primus solo on there that is INCREDIBLE. It starts out with a drippingly distorted open A. Then he cuts that, and on with the slapping and 16th notes at blistering speed. Wicked!!! Look for it.
is it the one with 2.9 MBs? Where Mark starts together with a silent snare drum noise then goes over to slap complete blues chords?
I can say I like all of the solos of Stanley Clarke, but especially: Mothership Connection(the version from the Bass-ic Collection), the start of Wild Dog, and Is Love Enough.
I like Chris Squire's at the and of the great Yes number Fish.
Probably not, since it's a Primus solo!
I was at school last week, and a couple of guys were listening to an uncomprehensible jaco solo from some teaching book or something. they were following along with the music. it was beyond any other bass solo. sheer musicality, no slapping popping tricks. lots of 16th notes
anything by john entwhistle of The Who. he does some freakin awesome solos live and any of the songs he plays on sound like bass solos anyway.
anything by flea
anything by geddy lee like that one part in la villa Strangiato
NAPSTER!! i remember that lol
lol wow, it's so weird to see people talking about NAPSTER in the present, it seems like a long time ago! Well it's already been 10 years...wow...
Anasthesia (pulling teeth)
By Cliff Burton
That's tough. So many to choose from.
How about my CURRENT favorite.
Played by Gary Willis from Tribal Tech and it's a short solo but beautifully played during the song "Wounded" from the Face First CD.
WAAAAAAAAY too many solos that I dig for me to post only one but here are a few.
Damian Erskine on "Bright Sized Life". Every time this guy lays down a solo it's gold. Of course that is my personal opinion but even among the bassists that I like there are few that are as melodically capable as this guy.
Another one of those few is Tony Grey. Both of his solo efforts have the bass in a lead position but I really cannot think of anyone that has done it like he has. So in his music he's pretty much at the melodic front of every song (and he fits right in) but in others' music, when he's in a more supportive role he pulls no punches on his solos like this one here on Hiromi Uehara's "If". I can't count how many times I've watched this one.
This next isn't one of the big guys but he definitely should be. He goes by Bassran on youtube. Apparently his real name is Ran. I wish I could find some recordings with him on them but all I've got it youtube vids and I love every last one. If you asked me to pick a favorite I couldn't but because I love Miles Davis' "So What" so much I'll link his solo over that. I hope that my post gets him a few more subscribers so he'll post vids more frequently
Jing Chi - Go Figure (Solo was done by Jimmy Haslip) Very nice phrasing and ideas, great feel and the tone is perfect imo.
