: 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

Check out the playing of Incubus bassist Dirk Lance... i mean they already have 2 albums out but the guy is an all around great bassist with a quite interesting style... not nearly as complicated as maybe flea or wooten but he really does his job in helping them acheive their distinct sound... he even breaks out into some bad-ass slap on fungus amongus, its great stuff... yeah check him out. chris
