Geddy Lee is definatly one of the best bassists out there. He has a styles all his own, made up of intricate rhythm and in some songs melody parts that make it easier to sing and play at the same time. Also he does incredible work with his synth-bass effects. I would reccomend any bassist to go pick up a copy of Rush's Exit Stage Left. (I ask anyone who disagrees to try to play YYZ or La Villa Strangiato without losing a finger).
