    i just checked out victor wooten

    its amazing i need to get soem albums from this guy.
  4. Get Victor Wooten- Me & My Bass guitar, its toooo funky!
    If you can find it Cliff Burton used to pull off some great solo's. Ryan Martinie of Mudvayne is good also, but you might have a hard time finding some of hive live solo's, which are arguably his best.
    Stu Hamm also, I love his live medley with the moonlight sonata and peanuts theme.

    Ditto on Michael Manring. There's practically nothing he can't do on four strings...
