    Bass fans and Beatles fans-check him out

    The "10 favorite songs thread" got me thinking about all the GREAT bass players out there. Check this guy out. Of cousre there is Jaco, Stanley etc.. but THIS GUY is out of control. That's all him. NO accompanying players. Don't miss the last 20 seconds. Then, just for fun... the 2nd guy. VERY KOOL.

    Both are awesome players. Thanks for posting the tunes, Southpark. You mentioned him, but Stanley is the guy who most amazed me back in the 70s with Return to Forever. The other guys in the band weren't bad either. :D The title cut from his solo album, [I]School Days[/I], is still one one the funkiest tunes. Love the breaks each artist takes, especially the master. If you young guys who like fusion haven't heard this cut, please give it a listen. You'll thank me. Track starts at approx. :14.

    I own a few Stanley CD's, school Days is on my IPOD. Good stuff. Thanks!

    I think in these terms, Stanley is like Jimmy Page... the founding father. Without him, the followers would be sort of different.

    I just remembered this Return to Forever tune, written by Clarke. You can hear elements of "School Days". Watch Stanley's hands and remember that this is in the 70s. Clarke re-wrote the book for the next three generations of bass players.

    He is the "Tiger Woods" of Bass playing. Scary though, like Borgo states, there are so many at his level. Unreal.

    Its funny though...I hate to say it...to me, that was a little gimmicky if, impressive.

    I dont want to see a one man band base player, if that makes any sense?

    For instance, this is still one of the coolest things I have ever seen.....

    SOmeone else posted it here a while ago, though I forget who....

    A bass is a guitar. A straight six string and a bass are intertwined in a way, players of both can appreciate the other.

    Totally understand. Wooten is a studio musician and[B] can [/B]play it all.

    He is extremely sought after , plays commercials, tours, etc...

    I chose THAT video because it is out of control. Believe me, he can play anything and is a top professional.

    I LOVE Entwhistle, way ahead of his time. the work in "My generation" is WAY KOOL.

    Geddy Lee is awesome if you like bass players.

    School Days. One of my Top 10 albums of all time. Love Sanley Clarke.

    Yeah, and ChickCorea, Al Di Meola and Lenny White weren't too bad either.

    I think we played Romantic Warrior nonstop for about a month sophmore year in college.

    That and The Crusaders. Gotta dig those albums out.

    Wow, bringing up some great mamaries.
