Those guys are just show-offs. The best bass players in the world are (and were) people like James Jamerson and Paul McCartney.

Billy Sheehan:


And just a personal favorite (and more my genre):

Cliff Burton:


Also, John Myung of Dream Theater comes to mind.

Sorry but your user title is perfectly chosen.

Every video so far has been a 'solo' or 'jam' spot. That's the idea! Show what you got, put it all on the line, push your skills to the limit and melt some faces!

Very true. My favorite players usually are jazz bass players. although Some good old Fugazi/punk bass lines are just amazing. You can tell who plays with emotion vs just slap the bass as fast as you can.

I'll throw in Marcus Miller, Bootsy Collins and Buckethead on bass is just as awesome as when he's on guitar.

Myself! Kidding, but I agree with pretty much every player named so far. I personally think this guy is great.

But Lemmy is God - we can't compare him to "mere" bass players.
