    Given that they don't play basslines that they're known for, what bass player could you identify just by hearing them improvise a groove with a drummer?


    Geddy Lee
    V. Wooten
    Marcus Miller
    Flea

    ..are my choices

    Les Claypool and Flea would be pretty easy to pick out I would think.

    Fairly distinctive are some bass/drum teams, like Sly & Robbie or the Sales brothers.

    Entwistle, Squire, Claypool, Geddy, Fieldy, & Flea are pretty distinctive to me. Others too I'm sure... Billy Sheehan....
