ok, before it was great to be different, people like (for some examples) jaco pastorius was amazing with his customised fretless jazz and john entwistle was just dazzling with his new concept of playing the bass. these days however it seems all the people getting big are playing p's or j's and are sticking to playing the root note. i know there are lots of people on tb who play amazing basslines but i mean people who are big, like really well known. so is it better to be normal and follow the trend these days or do people on here thing that it will soon swap round to being crative in a few years or so? any thoughts people? Thanks. Bass_Junkie.
