    I already can play vics- you cant hold no groove and most of classical thump. I was thinking you could name some good songs by artist such as marcus miller, victor wooten, alain caron and any other i've left out.
  2. You might want to check out some Victor Wooten, Marcus Miller, or Alain Caron.

    Gallien Krueger for the last 12 years!
    "Mr. Briefcase" by Lee Ritenour. Louis Johnson holds it down!
    BTW, I think that this belongs in "Recordings".

    Yes! I have that album "Rit", it's great. I think the lyrics are generally as cheesy as can be but I love the music in general.

    The bass playing on Mr. Briefcase is pretty cool. :)
