    Hi this might be a bit of a silly thread but I thought it would be fun. Sometimes I like to match musicians across instrument, mostly just bass and guitar since those are the ones I'm familiar with.

    For example:

    -I've always seen Flea as being the Slash of the bass world and vice-verse. This is mostly due to their popularity in mainstream culture and I would also argue similar approach in their playing styles.

    -I've always think of JPJ as being similar to Gilmour in their simple but tasteful licks/lines, they also have the same presence on stage in my eyes for some reason.

    -I would also match Hendrix and Jaco for being revolutionary in their genres and also worshipped by guitarist and bassist as being the "one".

    Feel free to add more comparisons or argue to the points I have made.
