I've never seen a girl MAN-handle her bass like this!

    has anyone made Maki aware of this ? :)
  2. I dunno, I know of a couple female bassists who certainly aren't "dainty" in their playing.

    Neither Vivian from Gallhammer nor Vanja from Triptykon are showy players, but neither seem very afraid of their instruments, ha ha.

    Though of course, the slap-happy bassists posted earlier clearly have them beat as far as chops go.

    With respect to the original poster; at 2'25" of the posted video the bassist introduces herself as "F Chopper KOGA." The name of her band is Gacharic Spin; here they are performing "Lock On!!"

    By the way: despite their small frame and sometimes "cutesy" behavior, Japanese women (they are not girls) should never be underestimated!

    She's another huge talent, quite a performer. I can't think in terms of "best", but she, Julie and Tal are all doing great things!

    Pretty cool, too bad slap bass is going out of style (according to some TBer's).

    I guess computers in Japan must have those characters on the keys instead of letters. I wonder how that works though, Japanese characters obviously don't correspond with roman alphabet letters.
