    you should probably repost this in the recordings section. In answer to your question I listen to jazz, blues, and jam band (phish) music. hmmmm.. Songs that are as good as classical thump or portrait of tracy... All I'm going to do is name other wooten tunes so I'm not going to do that because you probably already know them.

    i like many different kinds of music. mostly rock music, but a like mellower music as well. i dig music in general i suppose, just so long as it has great bass work.

    The only bass solo that I can think of is Dominique Piazza's "Marie" from John McGlaughlin's "Que Alegra." I don't know if it will "beat" any other solos, but it is very musical to my ears.....and a finger buster.
  5. Mainly a punk person myself, although a bit of ska, metal, hip-hop, drum and bass, country and Jackson 5 goes down nicely.

    Also, this would be better served in either the Recordings Forum or Miscallenous Forum. Just down the page from Basses on the main menu.

    And welcome to TB. :)

    this won't help but i met a guy at a music store once that was playing a classical guitar piece on a six string bass,

    he was talented but it was really wankerific, hard to make a difficult solo without sounding like you are just showing off
  7. I listen to Primus. That should be all I have to say in terms of bass lines :)
  8. Metal (progressive,heavy and death)

    I listen mainly to metal. I'm also big into classic rock (Yes, Rush, Pink Floyd etc.). I've been getting away from death/black metal more and more and have been getting into the slower, thicker metal sub-genres (Sludge, Stoner, Doom). Crowbar is my favorite band. :bassist:

    Wicked bass piece that beats classical thump*?....chromatic fantasy :)

    anyway, I listen to music, that's about it.

    *in terms of wickedness

    I'll give anything a chance when it comes to music. I do enjoy good bass work, but to me the sound of the band/artist is more important. I like things from Blink 182 (poor bass work :p , fitting though), Marvin Gaye (lots of other Mo town), Red Hot Chili Peppers/Incubus (good bass work), Stuart Hamm (inspirational bass work :p ), and loads more.

    So yeah, thats me!

  17. Tool, Ill Nino (and most of the RoadRunnerRecords bands), Sevendust, Mudvayne and Flaw are my fave heavy music. But I've found a strange liking for music from my parents generation like The Eagles. I still can't get over how good The Eagles sound through my car stereo and sub. Embarassingly enough, I'm also a major John Denver fan. So, from Slipknot to John Denver...is there really much left?

    As far as good basslines: Tommy the Cat and Wynona's Big Brown Beaver by Primus, Not Falling by Mudvayne and anything by Vic Wooten has class written all over it.

    Moved, but I am sure at least one person will complain I put it in the wrong place.
  20. I enjoy Rock, Jazz, metal, latin, blues, funk, fusion

    Here is a small list of bands I like just to give you an Idea:
    Bela Fleck & The Flecktones
    Doobie Brothers
    Dream Theatre
    Grateful Dead
    Weather report

    If you are looking for some solo material that compares to Jaco's and wootens stuff, Check out GHS(Frank Gambale, Stu Hamm and Steve Smith). Stu cuts some killer solos on those CD's. Also check out Bunny Brunell, He has some amazing stuff as well.
