Bass is that sweet spot between harmony and rhythm. I'm a percussionist primarily and I honestly would've never been able to pick up any other instruments had it not been for learning bass.
It can be the greatest part of any ensemble, while at the same time it can be the worst... really depends on the musician.
The only right answer can't deny the quick fingers.
The guy metallica got to replace robert trujillo is pretty good
Anybody that literally died and was brought back to life deserves a mention.
>all these meme musicians
If you dont know who this man is, then you should really consider ending your miserable life
This guy has contributed more to music than every musician posted ITT
and another RIP
Kiss sucks. Looking at them you would think they are the most brutal hardcore band ever. Then you hear their music and realize it is tame, top 40 rock meant to be played on the radio.
I don't know if I would call Pete an amazing bassist, but my god did he have a lot of sex appeal. If this is was an amazing voices thread then he would be #1, without question. His voice makes my dick diamonds.
longtime inspirations. fuck yeah
great thread, anyone wanna talk about their personal equipment ??
nice never played a cort before but know they are quality.
i have a few basses, fender fretless jazz, peavey grind 6 and my best bass is my ibanex k5 fieldy signature (1st active bass)
i just recently picked up a fretless wishbass from ebay and its cool but needs work lol.
nice man i have a gk700 head with a typical ampeg 4x10 cab. you mentioned your grandpa i forgot i have a tube fender bassman full stack some where in storage id like to play soon. great tone.
Sounds great, but he fucked up the wiring. I had to fix it myself, and now the neck pickups don't work because they haven't been played in 15 years. Other than that, it sounds fantastic. I plan on buying a new body and pickups, and restoring it completely.
Same here. I play a lot of extreme metal stuff, and I'm hoping to get a Spector Legend Classic 5 string soon. As a lefty, good 5 string basses are hard to find, especially in black cherry sunburst which I have a massive hard on for.
Trevor Dunn, best known for Mr Bungle, Fantomas etc
My fucking nigger. Steve DiGiorgio is a god.
And so is Alex Webster, one of my favorite bassists ever.
nice me too lol, thus derek boyer / suffocation.
dude id just save up and get a euro or what ever the hell that line is, ive played one in high school, one hell of a bass and worth the money
I may do that. I absolutely love Spector's sound, but that Precision Bass is the first bass of mine. I didn't want to spend $2k on my first real bass, but I could save up for it.
Actually, they do.
I'd buy it if I had the money.
Cliff Burton is the best of the best everyone else in thread is just a runner up
its funny you say real bass cus i feel that way too, but it will feel so good after getting it, this k5 bass ive wanted since i was middle school and i finally scored one im happy and its all i need but originally was around $1k
Fucking, nice man. Yeah, I think I may just wait then. As far as I know, that AW bass is the last one I could find, so I'm hoping I can snag it when I have the money because holy fuck I want it so bad.
that guy is one of whom i looked to when i first started playing
And of course Cliff Burton and Jason Newsted
Cody Wright, a Modernist Bassist
Remco's Groove Lab, this guy is a fucking freak
And Joe Bouchard of Blue Oyster Cult, the bassists for Smashing Pumpkins, and Stuart Hamm should be mentioned.
Les Claypool - Primus
one of very, very few man-crushes i have. despite him probably being one of the meanest people on the planet who doesn't murder and steal at a global impact. he brings on some pretty awesome artists to his Third Man Records label as well. and some of his original lp's go for thousands. great guitarist, just sayin'.
Your tiny lady fingers couldn't press the strings anyway.
If Claypool is God, Larry Graham created God
From maximum the hormone
>METAL CANNOT INTO BASS
It's definitely not the best genre for making it shine, but metal bass isn't totally horrible. That bass solo near the beginning of Hammer Smashed Face is one of my favorites.
This won't be for everyone, but: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWrHFKWS028
My dream bass. Actually I'd rather have an Alembic, but there's no way I'll ever afford one. A German Warwick is something I can reasonably afford to save up for, and they are still pretty fucking amazing. Of course, I'm pretty satisfied with my relatively cheap Ibanez GSR 400. I bought it used for $175. It was my first bass and the one I still love playing the most.
