Guest scott cs.

Fat Mike - NOFX (Leckie Gilman said i sound like him, playing wise :D)

Matt Freeman - Rancid - plays every note on that fretboard

Dan Adrianno - Alkaline Trio - he has a really nice style, plays some intricate fills.

favourite local bassist? hmmm...Marky from Gilman Street is really good, and Adam from 10EW.

My fave bassists are:

Jah Wobble - nice deep hypnotic dub basslines

Andy Rourke - just a great sense of both rythmn and melody and mildly funky.

Flea - just cos a he's great all round bass player, and it annoys me when people think he is just a master of funk cos he so much more subtle than people give him credit for as is shown by his playing on the Mars Volta album.

Omar Rodriguez Lopez - guitarist in ATD-I and The Mars Volta but his bass playing in De Facto is awesome, impossible not to groove to.

Claypool is my fave, check 'to defy the laws of tradition' by primus - typical claypool playing.

Flea, master of slap?? nah, wooten completely owns him. I thought Flea was the best, then I saw a flea instructional video, and he aint that great, just grooves that pentatonic funk shit over and over.

Mark King from Level42 is pretty dam good.

i agree bryn, flea is not a bad player at all, good lines and he has a good look. but hes not a god of slap. mark king is a beast, but he is kinda cheesy.

larry graham is the god of slap

on his website there is a lesson on how to play the first part of clasical thump. he thumps it, then thumps and hammer s it and then double thumps it. yea! to do the double thump you slap the open e string, hammer on the g (3rd fret) then pull your thumb back up to hit the G again. he dosent really slap like flea, its more like he hits downwards instead of slapping it head on. hhmm, hope that makes sense. theres a video on his site aswell.

to slap ghost notes i just mute the fretboard.
