Geddy Lee (even though I am NOT a Rush fan), Mike Watt of The Minutemen and Firehouse oh and Stooges fame, Yes Les Claypool and Flea are both amazing players but I feel they "over play" sometimes. Same goes for Matt Freeman of Rancid. Sometimes it's nice to play in the pocket so to speak, and be tasteful.

Re: …


Hey Clash! I didn't realize that you were a bass player... A good bass player is worth his
weight in gold!!

Teach your kid how to throw a left handed breaking ball and he'll never want for a team!
Learn your kid how to pluck/pick a bass and he'll always have a band!!

I'm actually a guitar player. 4 strings is for
snatches!!..LOL! just [sign in to see URL] a punk rock
guitarist you only really use as many as five
Ha ha! And a pinch just the top(bottom) two!!

A little OT shop [sign in to see URL] do you feel about
covers? I'll just preface that by admitting
that I don't really care for them, unless it's a
cool song and a band can add their personal touch to it.

I'm ok with cranking out a cover as a warm up
to begin practice with. It's when that one
cover morphs into a Super Sounds of the 70's
Hair band anthem ballads hour long infomercial
that it irks me. That's when I generally put
down the guitar and go smoke a cigarette or
sit down and kick back until everyone gets it
out of their system. Unless of course I'm
feeling particularly Stalin(esque),then I'll
stand there and deliver the stare! LOL! And
the stare varies from the Stalin's having a
bad day to a sarcastic "Dude, you can't be
serious??"

Anyway I just had to get that off my chest
for some reason... That was kind of cathartic!
Thanks man, I feel better for some reason!
Ha Ha! emoticon

And keeping with the spirit of the thread in
general... A few of my faves with off the
top of me noggin...

Dee Dee Ramone, Geezer Butler, Iron Maiden's
Steve Harris and Darryl Jenifer of Bad Brains
fame! Aw sheet! How could I almost forget
Good 'Ol (Ye OLD?) Lemmy Kilmister!?!

hahaha nice! Bass players are frustrated guitar [sign in to see URL] for cover [sign in to see URL] all my years playing in bands I only did a few in 20 years. I saw The Ramones in 1981 or so and Dee Dee was the catalyst for me wanting to be a bassist. He maybe was a simple bass [sign in to see URL] his energy and charisma in his early days goes unmatched. Love The [sign in to see URL] could I forget Lemmy and Darryl from the Bad [sign in to see URL] in the Bad Brains were amazing [sign in to see URL] shout out. Though I am not a Maiden [sign in to see URL] is no doubt about Steve [sign in to see URL] plays his bass like a lead guitar [sign in to see URL] Trooper!!

HA! The Ramones are always in the rotation
when I get cornered and someone asks my ADD ass
who my favorite band is!

Dee Dee is an amazing bass player. He perfected
the punk rock picking bass style. Aurthur Kane
once told me that he taught Dee Dee how to
play! Well the boy certainly took the ball and
ran with it!! His "clicks" are so precise. If
you listen to the early albums he is so spot
on tight and in time. Dee Dee was the heart &
soul of those angry troubadours indeed!

People will sometimes try and clown on the
Ramones for their simplicity. To which I
simply say "Go out and try and learn a full
Ramones set!" I guarantee that you'll walk
away frustrated at some point. There's alot
of changes in some of those songs and they
come at break neck speed! Then when you're
done go and play 30 songs in an hour and
15 minutes shotgunning through them like
going down hill on a bike without brakes or
handle [sign in to see URL] the only chance you have
to catch your breath is when Dee Dee charges
the mike and shouts 1-2-3-4 before ripping
into the next song!

Did I happen to [sign in to see URL] I Love the
!@#$ RAMONES!!!!!

1-2-3-4!!!!

I guess so!!! I love them too. Seen them along with The Dickies, X, Social Distortion probably the most in my [sign in to see URL] for bands I was touring with. Played CB's in 1998 and was just bowled over with the history of the place. Patti Smith, Blondie, Ramons, Dead Boys, etc amazing! Just listen to Ramones Alive and you just hear them blow up the world. The video of that show is amazing

Re: Bass Players in the house?


Started on bass, ended up moving to guitar. Still pull out the bass when writing/tracking demos by myself.

As for me, Robbie Shakespeare is the man.
