    If you could jam with just one bassist, who would it be?

    For me I'd have to say cliff burton, with Steve Harris being in close second, and then all the other greats of rock

    Edit: I've expanded it to one musician, so now guitarists, drummers etc are all fair game. My answer still stands :bassist:
     
  2. Victor Wooten, with Marcus Miller running a close second. Mike Gordon and Phil Lesh tied for third.
     
  3. Steve Lawson

    The only Ginger Baker I have heard of is the drummer from Cream...

    That's the reason I got a looper. ;)

    I can't think of too many bassists I wanna jam with, that has potential to be cool. But I can think of 10,000 drummers I'd like to jam with.

    Bootsy collins, stanley clarke, or les claypool, just in hopes of being able to get my hands on their bass guitars
