After reading the J. Newsted thread, I'm amazed at the number of people that think that bassists can only play one style!! This happens with every genre, every player. Don't stereotype!! There are a lot of bassists known for particular styles, but I would not be surprised if most of them can do a lot of other styles. Probably do them well too. Who knows, Larry Graham might be a pretty wicked detuned, all downstroke pick player!
