    Which 2 bassist had the biggest impact on your style of playing ? For me I would say Jason Newsted and Robert DeLeo. I would say Jason taught me how to rock and keep it tight and Robert DeLeo taught me how to groove and approach each bass line differently. :bassist:[​IMG][/IMG][​IMG][/IMG][​IMG][/IMG][​IMG][/IMG]

    John Myung and Flea. Myung's virtuosity and creative countermelodys had a huge effect on the way i approach the intstrument.
  4. Man, I don't think I could nail it down to just 2....

    I take it all in from all points of life... nuggets and clams fall out from all over :smug:
  5. tom kennedy- for the nice groove he sets down, staying in the pocket and playing about a thousand notes per measure.

    jimmy johnson- pretty much the same reason, except he really knows how to hold a nice steady groove while evryone else is playing a thousand notes per measure.:bassist:

    I know it's a tad cliche to say Geddy Lee... but...

    Geddy Lee and either John Myung or Tony Levin. It's a hard call between the 2, so allow me to be indecisive. :)

    Jaco and Marcus Miller. That's where I get most of my inspiration from.

    i don't know. i learn something new everytime i hear a song. every bassist inspires my style.

    so do all the other instrumentalists out there.

    but i really like john paul jones, trevor dunn, geddy lee, and james jamerson.

    I'd say my biggest are Geddy Lee and Justin Chancellor.

    I can't really narrow it down to two, but I guess Larry Graham and Bernard Edwards would be a great couple.
