Just for fun obviously .... If you could somehow mind meld and absorb the skill set of any 1 bass player, who would it be and why? As far as my choice? At first it was clearly Wooten, then I thought Hadrian Feraud, then Tony Franklin, Mark King, etc. This is a tough question to answer ... until it hit me: Bobby Vega His timing and feel is so ridiculously rock solid and he keeps it in the pocket as well as any other player I've ever heard. His right hand is a monster whether playing fingerstyle, slapping, raking and especially pick playing. IMO, the guy is king of the 16th note funk grooves and an all around bass beast. So, that's my choice, what's yours?
