As I continue on this bass playing journey of mine, I'm starting to discover exactly what kind of bass player I am and want to be. I'm a groove player. No fast licks or crazy slap solos for me, and I am just fine with that. In fact the more I practice slapping, the more I just don't like it. It sounds great when some people do it, it's just not for me. However, it seems ever youtube video I see of bass players is some super technical, double tapping, speedily arpeggiated, slap fest. Where's all the groove players at? A solo here and there is fine but I'm mostly looking for guys who can just lock in the pocket and groove all night long. Like the James Brown days. Pete Shand from The New Master Sounds, Benny Turner with Freddie King. He takes solo's all the time, but IMHO Chris Wood from MMW is first and foremost a Groove player. What I'm looking for is mostly finger style cats that love to hold down the Groove. BONUS POINTS IF THEY PLAY A P BASS.
