Who is best bassist of all of time?
>>87783116the Roland TR-808
>>87783116Depends on style, but you can't go wrong with James Jamerson.
Probably Squarepusher. Practically perfect technical ability, some interest in extended technique and also incredibly musical. Probably the only person that makes enjoyable solo bass guitar music.
>>87783197This is probably the safe pick honestly. Don't think anyone can deny he wasn't one of the best ever.
>>87783116For me, it's either Doug McCombs or Claypool
McCartney is one of my personal favs, but prob James Jamerson
Whoever played bass on Close to the Edge
>>87783409Chris Squire is a based choice too
>>87783409Chris Squire is a good pick
It's James Jamerson. There is no other answer. If you don't say James Jamerson you know nothing about electric bass.
>>87783409Chris Squire, good call amigo
Why are black people so good at bass?
My favorites are Hugh Hopper and Fred Frith.
>>87783464Natural sense of rhythm/groove.
>>87783116Pick one of these:Bootsy CollinsJames Jamerson Willie WeeksJack Bruce
>>87783116I don't know if he's the best, but Paul is the first thing that come to my mind when I think about great bassists. So he's my personal pick.
Don't know or care about objective best, but pic related is super underrated
>>87783130Thats the tb-303 you cretin
>>87783703Good player. His interplay with Andy's guitar is crazy (especially on Power Station).
Duh, it's obviously D'arcy from Smashing Pumpkins.
>>87783776She's played more cocks than basslines though
>>87783800Thats alot of baselines.
>>87783800She should have gone into porn. But like, when she was hot. Now it'd just be unpleasant.
>>87783116Admiral Nobeard, no one even comes close.
>>87783931too bad modern muse is shit and has barely any basslines.
>>87783931What are some notable Muse basslines except Hysteria?
>>87783116Pretty easily flea but there are a few contenders
>>87784046futurismdark shineshyper musicmuscle museum
>>87783445I've heard arguments in favor of Jaco Pastorius. However Jamerson was an absolute motherfucker.>>87783464Go to a black church and you'll see why.
Simon Gallup's bass lines are the nicest sounding, therefor his is the best
Jaco Pastorius maybe
>>87784649Unique choice, his work with trio-convulsant is amazing.
Les Claypool by far or John Paul Jones that was basically Led Zeppelin.
>>87783723>303>designed for bass>only used for acid rave shit>808>designed for drums>synonymous with bass for those under 25this is what happens when you dont release instruction manuals with your electronics
>>87783776even though corgan recorded all of the basslines
>>87785985Yes but aided by D'arcy's cocksucking
>>87784229>JacoThe truthJameson and JPJ are runner ups
>>87783197This, or Pino. If we're just talking technical ability the basic bitch choices of Jaco, Wooten or Claypool.My personal favourites right now are Juan Alderete and Esperanza Spalding.
>>87783116My friend Keir
>>87784046Most tracks from absolution
>>87783116Cliff fuckin' Burton.
>>87784472But what about the voice of Geddy Lee? How did it get so high? I wonder if he speaks like an ordinary guy.Okay, serious now: Paul McCartney for me, also for popularising the sixties shortscale/flatwound bass tone.
>>87784472that movie was fucking hilarious
>>87787172you're either a boomer or a zoomer who just discovered metal
>>87788427Or just someone who acknowledges that he was one of the best
>>87786869>PinoB A S E D
>>87783116Not the best ever but Rob Wright from NoMeansNo deserves a shout out
>>87788427Cliff Burton was the glue that held old Metallica together, they're talented but they couldn't write shit like Orion without Cliff.
the bald nicca from king crimson
>>87786927A PROPHET ON THE BURNING SHORE
>>87788616Exactly. That's why none of their music post-Master of Puppets has all those rich melodies.
Krist Novoselic is pretty underated
>>87783116Difficult question...les claypool, tina weymouth, kelly shaefer and geddy lee are some of my favourites overall though
entwistle was the perfect rock bassist to me
>>87783116>zero mentions of Geezer Butlerfor shame /mu/
Flea, unironicallyHe was the lead bassist on a ton of great work outside RHCP, including recording several albums with Thom Yorke, Jane's Addiction, and The Mars Volta.
>>87789541when are the jannies gonna ip ban your stupid NEET ass?
>>87789612The jannies are too Stephpilled for that.
Kim Deal a cute!
gotta say its claypool
Sam Wilkes maybe?
Nobody has posted the best yet?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80dsyo2Ox-0
>>87788817Tony Levin? He's pretty based. The Chapman stick is a good instrument.
JACO FUCKING PASTORIUShttps://youtu.be/nsZ_1mPOuykthere will never be another, a true "player" and innovator
Jaco motherfucking Pastorious
>>87790026If only he didn’t get his dumb ass killed in a bar fight he would’ve been an even greater legend
victor, jaco, or claypool
>>87788616Not many people realize this. Nothing post-Cliff era is good other than a few black album songs. Also, Orion is amazing but it is not his best, The Call of Ktulu is.
>>87783116>Lemmy Kilmister>Lou Barlow>Ron Ashton>Tina Weymouth>Geezer ButlerI can't really think of any other memorable bass sounds, desu, but whatever.
>>87783223Steele*He could slap that motherfucker with his cock
Jaco actually got me to listen to fucking jazz, so I'll go with him. Love Levin, Webster and Claypool too.
Les Claypool or Geddy Lee
>>87791537>meme musicianslmao no
>>87789514>Zero mentions of Steve Harris either.This board is disgusting.
>>87783116gotta rep Mike Watt of Minutemen:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dSsGEfi6Nu4also, Bernard Edwards from Chic:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOx81aG-EN4also, these:>>87783197>James Jamerson>>87783491>Bootsy Collins>>87784229>Jaco Pastorius>>87789682>Kim Deal>>87789517when I heard some tracks off "I'm With You," I was blown away by how great he sounded:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1swaZbPZL-gMVP for RHCP
Jimmy garrison is definitely in top 3 for me, Ron Carter is great too, and Paul Jackson is awesome. Of course every bassist loves Jaco, the dude was so fun to listen to. Oh can't forget the original nigga Niels Henning!
>>87790773Nigga have you listened to Frayed Ends Of Sanity?
Am i banned
imo roger waters
>>87785883I agree, this anon is good
Rocco Prestia of Tower of Power is amazinghttps://youtu.be/fsqbnwKwbMo
Jamerson is a niggerClaypool is great, but can't NOT be weird to save his life. Also, he never changes his strings and his playing sounds like fartsJaco is overrated drunk self-righteous trashBootsy Collins also suffers from niggerdomRoger Waters is decent at best and can't get over the fact that his dad got murked in WWIIWooten is technically gifted, but has NO taste, NO soul, NO feel, NO groove. He just masturbates all over the place. LOOK AT ME! I'M JACKIN OFF!Cliff Burton and Dave Mustaine should have quit Metallica and done their own shit. Gene Simmons is a kikeLemmy is overrated trash, but he liked nazi shit, so he's cool.Geddy Lee is a Class act and a gentleman.Paul McCartney is a legend and the best Beatle.John Paul Jones is the most talented member of Zep.Jack Bruce is probably GOAT.
>>87792633I swear I've seen this pasta somewhere
>>87792517part 2:Larry Graham from Sly and the Family Stone, then Graham Central Station:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wj5VODa-eTYsomehow Charlie Mingus hasn't been mentioned yet:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KESFYXQwCYA&t=10sIsrael "Cachao" Lopez:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ka70pyIs7AA...and Jimmy Blanton, from Duke Ellington's band:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awal53BFU5M
>>87792647that's just cuz ur a nigger
>>87792647I swear Ive seen this nigger somewhere
>>87792647I swear I've lynched this nigger somewhere
>Rock: Holger Czurkay>Jazz: Mingus
>>87792773based Moomin posterhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2dZbAFmnRVA
>>87792647I nigger I've niggered this nigger niggerwhere
>>87783116Jaco and Stanley Clarke are pretty much tied for jazz bassists in my mind , with John Entwistle and Jack Bruce being tied for rock bassists.Victor Wooten just seems mechanical like he's just showing off technique.
>>87792633>Bootsy Collins also suffers from niggerdom
>>87783116Chris Squire if we're talking rock/prog
Definitely John Entwistle
At the moment im fascinated with Geddy Lee. https:/www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWBPgtB9m3EWhoever mentioned Pino is dead on as well, few people pioneered and trailblazed shit like Pino. Scott from Scottsbasslessons on youtube just did a phenomenal video about him. Dude used fretless and octavers in pop music in the 80s.
I like Jaco
>Thundercat>Steve Harris>Geddy Lee>Lou Barlow
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Raposo_(bassist)not the best in the world but sure the best in his genrehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exglMS5y7_chttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzezFe5u3iw
this interpol guy- carlos something
>>87783409good PICK hehe very BASSED
>>87783223it's a shame he's a total worsecunt of a person. he can slap the bass but he needs a slap irl
>>87792466Well desu Steve Harris is surely an incredible composer and despite a great and impressive right hand technique his left hand technique is nothing special
>he rates Fleahttps://youtube.com/watch?v=8itum6etNcM
