two pages in and no mention of Les Claypool yet? what's wrong with you lot?! although you might be on to something, hard to describe what he does as 'singing' ...

 

 

Did someone just... err... Mention Les Claypool?!...

“Thank ye' kindly, Gus... "

 

p.s. he's the self proclaimed “narrator" &/or “storyteller" he ain't never been the singer ;)

 

 

Gotta love his take on Amos Moses....

Suzi Quatro. Cronos from Venom. Peter Cetera on his solo stuff. Ken Casey from Dopkick Murphys shares vocals with Al Barr.

Mark King. Sings over some of his most fearsomely fiddly fingerstyle lines and quite frankly I don't know how he does it.

I don't know why he does it.

The almighty Lemmy, of course. No need for a picture. If you don't know him, you know nothing about bass. Period.

Lemmy was the consummate rocker, a man so great I even named my dog after him.

Nevertheless, I take your Lemmy and raise you one Phil Lynott.  An appetite for the good things in life so great he lasted only half has long as Lemmy, and his bass playing light burned twice as bright.

May as well lock the thread now.

I’d stick him in the annoying category now, but when I was starting out I was hugely inspired by Gene Simmons of Kiss.

I don't know why Richard Hell was considered a punk when he was making pop music, and singing as bad as a punk for sure.

Geddy Lee has already been mentioned without photo, because they have been ... moving pictures. 

XYZ, my friend. 👌

For me its the obvious Geddy Lee, Jack Bruce, Phil Lynott, John Wetton and even the occasional Gene Simmons altho not really the lead singer he did lead vocals on some songs.

I like that.

Never listened to them before.

There are 2 versions, due to the seemingly endless squabbling between Harley and John Joseph, but Harley won the rights to the name a while back, John Joseph's version hasn't produced any new material, whereas Harley seems to be rejuvenated.

Many great players and singers mentioned here and more yet to be mentioned I am sure .

My personal favourite and inspiration ( I learned to play bass by copying his bass lines by ear)...

Mr Burke Shelly  of the band , Budgie Ladies and gentlemen.

Vastly underrated band that influenced many rock bands that followed.

I saw them many times ...they once toured with Judas Priest in  support ....why Priest got the fame and Budgie didn't I will never know.

Obviously all these things are subjective and if you don't like rock music you won't like this...….( not really showing off Mr shelly's bass playing but probably their most famous song)....

Feck knows what's going on...

I've no ‘moji reactions left... (Spunked them all out, over these many great musical suggestions...) It's as though the mods get pleasure from controlling how much one can react... Well!!! I can still use symbols to create faces!!! 

 :-)

You'll never take that away from me!!

 

 

...and then this...

(Can't seem to find the Red Hot Chilli Peppers link, but...)

That guitar intro riff is completely ripped off by Flea on rhcp-around the world!!!...

Anyone?!.   No?!... Anyone?...

 

“Shame on you Flea, shame!!"

      Hi all, I'm selling my Alembic MK Signature Deluxe with Coco Bolo top, so here is little about the bass.
      Bass has no scratch, no belt buckle scratch, it's almost as brand new, as you can see from pics.
      Scale: 34"
      Fingerboard: Ebony with abalone
      Top: coco Bolo
      Back: Coco Bolo
      Body: Mahogany with maple and purplehearth as accent woods
      Neck: Maple with Purple Hearth stringers
      Finish: clean gloss with satin finish on the neck
      weight: 5.7 kg (with 5 9v batteries that goes into the bass, 4x for LED)
      Electronics: volume, pan, 2x filters, 2x q switches, 1x LED on/off, 1/4" mono output.
      LEDs are amber and red (check pictures)
      Bass was done in 2015, so it has 2+3 machine heads.
      Bass has original case, papers, everything. New one like this is 17.600 dollars, you can check here on Alembic site my bass is Sig Dlx Coco Bolo.
      This is I think only signature bass in EU that is available with this price. For any questions you can contact me. Here are some pic that justify the whole thing, other pics you can see on my dropbox:
      https://www.dropbox.com/sh/huwja8inhg3pt5e/AAAZ_-yhsAWuU_Zi-cx5C75fa?dl=0
       
      Price says 6000 pounds but it's actually 6500 euros, just conversion is different every day.
       
      Also check my feedback page:

      New video lesson where I show you how to play a bass line and arpeggios at the same time. 
      Learn to master the 9th arpeggio & get a workout at the same time!
       
    • By greghagger
      Learn the bass line from The Police classic, ‘Message In A Bottle.’
      The main riff is so fun to play and I love the Reggae inspired chorus bass line. 
      There is a free PDF with the video lesson.  Choose between standard notation or Tab versions.
