"Who is your favorite bass player?"
I get asked this all the time and see it in social media. I get lots of grief and I always answer "ME!". I has to be me. If not, why do I work my ass of to be the best player I can? Yes, there are players I admire and emulate...but ultimately, I want to be the one playing...not anyone else.
So who is your favorite bass player? (thanks for saying me, but you are wrong)...IT IS YOU!!! IT SHOULD ALWAYS BE YOU!!!!
If it isn't then fix it....get a teacher (me? lol), find different/better players, practice more..something..
Lots of luck, feel free to contact me with questiions or comments....
