Just wanted to get some opinions on this topic. After a recent show, I was talking with some of the other bands on the bill and it was a general concensus that bass guitar in the 90's suffered from the same problems that electric guitar suffered from in the 80's. Too many players with incredible ability, and too little to say. There was much more emphasis on how many strings you had, and how fast you could play. Do other bassists agree or disagree, and is this still a problem?
