Simon Gallup has always been one of my favorite bassists. A long time ago, I switched from guitar to bass and players like Simon Gallup (and Eric Avery) had a huge influence on me. Mainly because as a self-taught player I was already developing a similar approach, less pentatonic, more open string octaves/droning and just hypnotic & repetitive grooves that build and change organically thru the song. During all this isolation, I am certainly getting more time practicing my bass and learning "new" songs . Songs I've loved for years but never had the time or inspiration to try when I had the time. Currently, The Cure is in heavy rotation and I recommend their albums Wish, Disintegration, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me or one of their earlier albums called Faith if you want to get into them. That said, the real purpose of this thread is to see what albums or players people on TalkBass are diving into lately to break up the monotony?
