Check out the bass player for Consider the Source (out of NY), John Ferrara. Here is a recording I did of them a few days ago - http://www.archive.org/details/CtS2011-01-20

Pretty dirty bass player I would say. Lightning fast hands.


I rate Bass players more on how they groove with the band than solos. With that in mind listen to this.

Heres a show by them that I recorded - http://www.archive.org/details/CtS2011-01-20

I think it is great that Buckethead is included. He is clearly superior than say Paul McCartney, John Entwistle or James Jamerson (those three don’t have a clue of what is playing bass nor writing a fucking bass line).


Anybody who would make a statement like that doesn't have a clue what makes a good bass player or about music in general. I have never seen a quote in these forums that is more wrong or just plain stupid. Your opinion isn't worth the crap I flush down the toilet every day. If your statement is meant to be sarcastic because of it's absurdity then OK.


Of course it was sarcasm. Given that songwriting is part of the criteria McCartney, Jamerson and Entwistle should be in the top 25 easily.

I also will like to hear Buckethead great bass playing. (At least in Population Override he sucks big time).


OK then. A smiley face might avoid confusion in the future. :banghead:


hey echoes i took off buckethead even though he's pretty fucking sick on bass, but to many folks wanted him n Malmsteen off the list so i did

I don't see any reason Trujillo, Burton and Harris should be as high as they are, above guys like Webster, Lepond, Graham and Lee (who is at 63 btw; need to fix that). Newsted also doesn't need to be on that list.

I agree...those people are definitely too high, I made the case for Harris being too high while I'm not too familiar with Trujillo's work and Newstead doesn't even deserves to be on this list especially above the likes of King or Lee...

Steve Harris is way too low. His ability is unrivaled and he writes the greater part of Iron Maiden's catalog.

Harris plays 16th note gallops really quickly. He's an amazing player, but not nearly as technical as other guys.

How many of the guys above Harris also use a pick instead of their fingers?

I think he's rated too high myself. He doesn't impress me at all. The fact that he writes has nothing to do with his playing ability.

What difference does it make? To answer your question almost all of them are finger players.

Agreed he's a one trick pony. Nothing else he does is that great.
