Can someone make a list of bass players which would be good to listen to as an aspiring bass player.
Lots of good threads on the subject already compiled just for you!!
Oh, and welcome to Talk Bass!!!
This guy that Anthony Valenti. He's not really well known but his playing is pretty great. Give a listen <a href="http://artists.mp3s.com/artists/162/theorem.html">HERE</a>.
Alrighty, I'll give you a list of the ones that i started listening to once I started last year
Matt Freeman (Rancid)
Paul Simonon (The Clash)
Fat Mike (NOFX)
Jay Bentley (Bad Religion)
Dee Dee Ramone (hey, shut the **** up, his style was so straightforward it was incredible)
Well, from a classic-rock point of view...I'd say good bassists would be:
Carl Radle (Derek and the Dominos)
Jack Bruce (Cream)
John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin)
Bill Wyman (The Rolling Stones)
A short list, sorted alphabetically.
Many names I probably forgot...
Donald "Duck" Dunn
John Paul Jones
