: Everybody knows about Flea and Wooten and all these famous stars but do you have any favorite players maybe all of us haven't heard about?
: Any players you think I should check out, any style. It's an inspiration to find new ways of approcing the bass.
: I don't have any bassists to name here but I'd like to commend a drummer, the bassists' best friends, Marvin "Smitty" Smith. Check him out for instance the Buddy Rich memorial concert.

: Dave Wood

I would have to say...keep an eye out for Scott Hubbell, he is awesome, as well as Adam Nitti, both are very similar in their styles, kind of a jazz rock stew. Ray Riendeu (sp) and Bill Dickens are worth checking out also. You can check out Scotts take on "Flight of the Bumble Bee" at as well as some very informative lessons that you could use to put that fancy new Yamaha 6 to work at, since they are geared more towards 6 string players....
