Hello Folks, I have been out reading around on the web, and have a question. What makes you decided who is a great player? I mean, is it the choice of notes and placement, or is it stage presence? Is it WHO he plays with, or if he does clinics? A lot of what I found states something like this....."I just seen (so & so ) and he/she was so great!"..."He put on a great show"....."I seen him at a clinic, and he was great", with no mention of what recordings and/or bands he/she played with,etc. But out of most of the posts I have read on the web hardly anyone mentions style, lines, etc., which leads me to believe that alot of people just go for the "look" and don't give that much thought to the work that has gone into the creation of the bass part. Not trying to start any wars, just asking. Looking forward to reply's..
