Last week I did a post about music, the front man; or what is commonly known as the lead singer. I enjoyed doing that post because of my love for music. This ones going to get a little more into the musicality of music.
The bass guitar has always fascinated me from the time I was young watching bands in clubs, including my uncles. Many bass great bass players come out of the genre of jazz, however there are a number of great ones out of rock too.
Like my list of lead vocalists, I’m going to select four, the four that I find the most talented and worthy of my 4 top bass player list 🙂
Here is a video of Victor playing solo using some kick ass electronics to make his bass do some amazing shit! Brings chills every time I watch it 🙂 So, that was Victor.
Now one from the genre of rock/Jazz. Everybody who enjoys the combo of rock and jazz I’m sure has heard of the band Weather Report. Well that band had as one of its basest for a few years one of the best bass virtuosos I’ve heard; that being Jaco Pastorius
He does things to the bass that is probably illegal in some countries. 🙂 Take a listen.
Now a special treat. Hearing three of these four play together. 🙂
Wow…who’s the best. Tough decision for me.
