I'm sure that a thread similar to this has been started before. I'm a newbie and this site is pretty overwhelming when you don't know the ins and outs of it. So instead of searching for a past thread I'm making a new one. Who are your favorite female bassists? I don't have a favorite in particular. The newest lady I've heard of that is seriously talented is Divinity Roxx. I was blown away by here. Unfortunately she plays bass for Beyonce which I couldn't care less about... BUT she has some serious chops. And of course you have to throw Carol Kaye in there. Sean Yseult from White Zombie. Tina Weymouth of Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club fame. Who are your favorites? I'd love to find some new people to listen to.
