    But wait!
    She isn't playing a P bass with flats in the pocket! She's soloing! She's playing an expensive bass that isn't a Fender! TALKBASS HERESY!!!

    I can't believe I forgot about Meshell Ndegeocello. Boy do I feel like an idiot.

    I went back and edited my original list. How could I forget Leather Tuscadero aka Suzi Quatro.

    I have a soft spot for their original bassist Corey Parks. Probably because she breathed fire right over my head at a tiny club gig (Crocodile Cafe) back in 98ish!

    There are lots of them. Tal and Esperanza and all them are great players, but for me I prefer the rockers, the ones with 'tude.

    For this, it's Johnette Napolitano, without competition.

    Is she more of a singer/songwriter than a bassist? Well, so was Phil Lynott if you want to look at it that way. But no other women in the field have the dominant presence in their band the way she does.

    I gotta say I liked Suzy Quatro's vibe. Nobody else pulls that off like that, not even Joan Jett who tried.

    That chick in Rush is pretty good too....
