This is sort of a cousin to my "no compromise" thread in Misc, but are there any strictly upright players that you count as influences? Myself, I almost have more upright players than electric! Charles Mingus Nels Henning Orsted Petersen Scott LaFaro Ray Brown (more his book that his actual playing) Eddie Gomez (pretty sure he's upright only) Paul Chambers Ron Carter I would play only upright if I could afford one, but since I'm poor, and don't have the room, I make do on my electric with a pick and flatwounds. Anyone else? No doublers!
