    Miya from Bleach03

    Miya not being dainty with the bass.

    Hard to believe three girls from Okinawa can play with such ferocity.

    ok, well maybe this video will make up for it. it's the same guy playing jazz fusion with a band, and he's not wearing a dress or feeling himself or anything ;)

    omigod, I just crapped my pants when the groove (sic) kicked in.

    No, seriously, I did: I crapped my pants! Poo everywhere.

    That was awesome.

    Slapping and popping's not popular anymore? I must have missed something! Anyway, I only have a problem with it when it's overdone. Too many bassists seem to be satisfied with fast and furious technique. I mean, it's impressive from a purely technical standpoint, but I'm not feelin' the all-important groove!
  8. I think he's playing a Fodera NYC in the first clip and a Callowhill in the second one. Yes I agree, nice basses. Dude's a good bassist as well.

    ok, well here's something that will make you feel happy again:

    i don't think any discussion of asian female bassists is complete without a discussion of the great fumi from japan's greatest band ever, polysics. unfortunate that their keyboard player kayo just quit. hopefully they'll continue but she's pretty irreplaceable.
  14. What I meant by not being popular anymore is that during the mid-1980's to the early 2000's, many new songs on the radio would have slapping and popping as the bass parts. The first time I took serious notice of it was when I heard the Miles Davis "Tutu" recording. The masterful Marcus Miller played the style in a very musical way. Instead of trying to impress us with how fast he can play, he used the technique to add a powerful funky feeling to the music. Even though he slaps and pops all over that recording, it's done tastefully. But, then came along the players that just wanted to show how fast they could play. It left me cold.

    Since the early 2000's, there has been less and less of the technique. Maybe it just goes along with the return to the vintage vibe thing that has been popular for awhile.

    About what we experience in the music stores, when I hear someone slapping and popping on a bass, it's the same effect as someone playing "Stairway to Heaven" on a guitar. It's all about, "Ooooooh! Look what I can do!" :scowl:

    OK, I'l stop being grumpy now. :D

    I agree. It's got to be in the groove, not just showing off.

  20. Oh right, I'm glad that the only time bass gets noticed in popular music is on the decline. :bawl:

    I like slapping. Not like Vic. Like Larry Graham. It's what got me into bass as a 10 year old kid, haha.
