    Is Michael Manring really on these boards? He's one of my favorite bassists! I first saw him on Bass Day 98...very impressive.

    Now if we can just get Patitucci and Wooten on here, it'll be complete!!!

    Oh yeah, hi Michael. Thanks for the great bass guitaring... :bassist:

    I know! I felt the same way when he first came here, It's incredibly nice of him to drop in. He and Steve make a great team when it comes to covering all things solo bass.

    After rereading my post, it sounds like I'm a 12 year old girl and Britney Spears just walked into the room! What in the world...

    :hyper:

    Still, having one of the best bassists in the world hang out with us and give us tips is just the coolest. That's what I like about bass players. There just isn't competition or any of that "I'm better than you" attitudes (guitar players *cough* drummers *cough*).

    Michael's very nice about responding to people. I've even asked him a couple questions through email via his web site and he's responded. (I try not to bug him too often though)

  5. Yeah, I agree with you guys. Michael Manring, Steve Lawson and Mike Dimin all answer their own emails which is great. I did send an email to Victor Wooten, but I doubt that he'll reply.
     
  6. Doooooooooooooon't, I'll tell. :crying: :bawl:

    Hey man, you forgot singers!
