Also played a mean set of Taurus bass pedals!


Rutherford is one of the best.

Good call! John Giblin played with them for a while. Check out his playing with John Martyn (especially on the Grace and Danger album) and on Fish's debut solo outting "Vigil in a wilderness of Mirrors". Brilliant fretless player - awesome tone! Cool

As well as most of the above, my own list (significantly more than 10!) would also include Victor Wooten and Marcus Miller. Oh, and Stanley Clarke too! Very Happy

Jerry Peek too! Some of his work with Steve Morse is amazing! Smile

Check this out...at first it seems pretty straight forward slap but then the magic happens....

...there's a small lever that drops the frets so he can play fretless on the same bass.

Personally, I think it's pretty hideous, but each to their own! Very Happy

The Duff McKagan signiture Fender precision is looking good, and would look particularly nice next to the Geddy Lee signiture bass..hmm..

OMG!... Tony Butler?........ Mike Rutherford???

I thought this was a thread about "good" bass players?!!

Weird how nobody has mentioned Jaco Pastorious. Probably one of THE best players that ever lived!

Mac....Abraham Laboriel is an awesome bassman.He's played with many talented names in the jazz world including the fantastic guitarist Larry Carlton.Cant believe John Myung(Dream Theater)has not been included....especially as this is prodominantly a prog forum.....a true virtuoso at his instrument!!!!
