: I'm just looking for people to post their opinions here...
: Think about the bass, the role of the bass, the sound of the bass... and think of it today. Music would be so much much different tody if not for the electric bass, you think? Picture an upright bass in a metal band, or a funk group, or even just straightahead pop. Would these styles even be around today if not for the electric?These days we have players such as Michael Manring, Victor Wooten, and others who are taking the bass to a new level. It's impossible to think what changes will happen to the bass in another few decades!
A recent book, "How the Fender Bass Changed the World" By Jim Roberts is pretty good documentary evidence, and a good read.
