Bass Slapping


« on: April 13, 2008, 02:46:50 AM »

I used the search function and didn't found any topic related to this one.

I consider that Tony Levin is the all-time bassist of prog, no doubt about it. He just excels in every band (project) he has been to. Cheers

Oh, BTW, I had never imagined this 7-string bass could ever exist until I saw it  Shocked; and it is being sold out on e-Bay!!

When i first saw it, I thought: Is this real? this bass is really amazing

And this 12-String Warr also catched my attention easily, I guess it is prettier than the conventional chapman stick (Love at first sight)  Kiss

Yeah, Levin is excellent. Squire deserves a mention though, as does Stanley Clarke. I personally love Jack Bruce as well. Hes probably not considered a progressive rock bass player although he was definitely progressive in his style of playing without a doubt.

Jaco Pastorius is the best bass player ever. And yes a 7 stringed bass is pretty odd but John Paul John uses a 8 stringed sometimes that's really cool.

What about Hellmut Hattler?

But, the best is Jack Bruce, off course.

definitely agree with all previous posts

though when it comes specifically to prog I'm a little surprised I haven't seen Geddy listed up here yet...also I'd like to add Robertino "PAG" Pagliari (OHM) as well as Rufus Philpot (PLANET X) to the mix. 

hooray for my first post on progfrog! i just found this site and I'm really excited!
