    I think, IMO, women bass players are sexy as all get out :D . I am a big fan of Tina Weymoth from the Heads. Suzy Quatro was another kick ass Female player. I was suprised to find Sheryl Crow on a MM bass.

    I suspect our enamored friend was looking at JMX's avatar and not his actual photo when he declared JMX to be hot and requested that he email him.

    Not that JMX is not hot in a German guy kinda way...but you know....yeah.....

    i think the really question is, how did she get out of the kitchen long enough to pick up a bass? (for the record i'm kidding)

  18. bass baby,

    I apologis("z" if you like)e for contributing to the demise of this thread (Joe Nerve made me do it). To answer you're question, that is:

    I personally know a few girls that play bass (my own daughter for starters). I really don't see the significance of gender as relates to playing the bass. A bass player is a bass player, and gender is a moot point. I'd wager that the few people you've met who don't like female bassists are more than likely kids (or immature teens at best). I respect musicians for their musicianship, and not because they happen to have a goatee and chest hair (then again, I've met some women with goatees and chest hair... but that's a whole other thread which would more than likely get shut down very quickly). So anyhow, girl bassists are cool! Are you a girl bassist?

    P.S. If you use the search function, you'll find a few "female bassists" threads within these forums.
