I am curious… and I hope you all humor me and reply to this thread!
Name one (and ONLY one) living or dead bass player that best describes the style, tone, attitude, approach to playing/music etc that you are aspiring to achieve/emulate as a growing bass player!
I know this is tricky, as we all have many influences - but you need to choose ONE!
It certainly doesn’t need to be one of the “big ones”, but it could…
I also realize this can change over time - OK, let’s have another “survey” a year from now!
This is not a “who do you think is the best bass player” kind of survey! I would like to learn who the one bass player is who inspires YOU the most (currently), who has a playing style you aspire to reach, or who personifies an artistic level you dig!
I think I know who this is for @howard, and for @Jazzbass19 (but I might be wrong!), and someone mentioned Steve Harris a significant number of times recently , but for most of you I don’t know, and I think it could be interesting to find out!
So, reply with ONE name, a short motivation (why? what inspires you the most? etc) and perhaps ONE video showcasing/highlighting this!
Could become an awesome thread…
