  1. If any of these big shots could be your teachers, who'd you like it to be, and if so why? Leave your thoughts and comments. :)
  2. Marcus is a complete player. He plays fretted, fretless and acoustic. He can play funk and jazz. IMHO he can do it all very well and would be an amazing teacher.

    Vic; him one-on-one instead of 'workshopping' would be enlightening

    Marcus, since Jaco's dead.
  5. I choose Marcus for the same reasons as CyberMatteo. Billy Sheehan would also have been interesting...

    I'd choose Victor Wooten because he is probably one of the nicest people I have ever met. Since he isn't on the list Entwistle or Marcus.

    Rex Brown because he is a solid metal bassist and because we have similar styles. Also, he looks down to earth and easy to talk to.

    Seeing that we are taking lessons from dead people,

    I would want to spend my time with Duck Dunn

    The one who could teach theory as well as pull back enough to not teach his own style. Which one that is I don't know.

    I voted for John Entwistle because I prefer his style.

    I think I would need to disqualify Jaco because I would get sick of hearing "I'm the best bass player in the world!"

    I picked Marcus Miller. From all the interviews I've seen with him he seems to have a wealth of knowledge about all phases of playing.

    I'm surprised Jamerson hasn't been mentioned yet...

    Please don't misunderstand why I posted that. I don't like people shaming others for their spelling and punctuation. Let a alone someone (I'm assuming) who doesn't use it as their first language.
