    Is it Just me or is a female bass player sexy.

    I think I first saw taste of honey when I was a kid
    and had a crush on the bass player

    then there was double Z in new york village scene

    now its Yolanda charles
    and Nick west
    and that lady who plays for Ceelo Green

    Even CArol Kaye
    I would let her bake me brownies any day.

    spanish... the "senos".
    might be that

    Are you a heterosexual male? If so, the answer seems fairly obvious as to why female bassists seem to allure you more than male ones...

    I certainly agree with that premise (oh, Margie!).

    Little Tal certainly gets a lot of mileage out of that too, God bless her.

    I don't know whether it's that way now, but during the New Wave days the more petite the girl, the more likely she was to play a gigantic Jazz Bass. Girl Power, I guess.

    Just like girls like guys in bands, I think the other way around is just as true.

    Any time a woman is even moderately attractive and she is good at something you like, her sexiness quotient increases for you.
  7. Are the girls using fingers or picks? Hmmmmm Watching those flexible fingers might be doing something in the sub-conscious devious mind . . . I should add that I have seen an overweight not-very-attractive female playing bass and she played very very well. She's currently on the road with . . . (I ain't saying!)

    I don't have a wandering eye, but I guess you like a woman in action. The wandering eye, will of course stay with you.... don't go there, you hurt yourself as much as your love.

    I'm just getting started, but I hope that I will be able to play like that someday.

    even the average female bass player will be put in high regard if she is mildly good just because it is a girl and because she may be beautiful.

    True of a female doing anything.

    I'm much more interested in sexy female drummers, if they can actually play. That, I might need. Bass I've got covered.

    While Marta is no doubt beautiful, as a bass player she is remarkable. Try focusing only on her right hand technique for a few minutes. She floats her thumb on 4 out of the 5 strings and plucks with 3 fingers. Her excellent muting skills are what makes her sound so funky.

    Double Z is a great bassist. I met her at a gig we were both on in White Plains, NY, she was surprised I had heard of her and more surprised that I had owned her album at one time. On that gig she was with an all female smooth jazz project and sounded great.
