Above sea level, below the radar, down low.
Ibanez 5 string fretless, no, Fender Precision, no, Guild b30, no Fender, uh Marty's fretless, no the P-Bass... no maybe a standup or cello...
Rickenbacker, Alembic or Warwick bass, cello and/or a standup.
Phil Lesh, John Doe, James Jameson and Duck Dunn first and foremost, then Jack Bruce and John Paul Jones, John Entwhistle, and Jack Casady, Flea: Because they're bassists...
Bill Libkey made me do it! I liked it. I keep doing it! Bassist for the Wharf Rats and occasionally with UXO, Barefoot Romeos, and KING LEWMAN as well as sporadic sit-ins...
This is a good opportunity for starting musicians to perform with others in a non-judgmental situation and a great chance for established musicians to perform with different combinations of players. It is also a great opportunity for skilled cats to set aside ego and gunslinging and mentor some folks along the path.
