Rolling Stone did a poll on their readers’ favorite bass players last week. I saw the link to this on Yahoo a few days ago and then completely forgot about it. I’m not generally a Rolling Stone reader, so I wouldn’t even have remembered it if I didn’t see an ad for the magazine when I was elsewhere online.
But, without further ado, here’s the Rolling Stone Readers’ Top Ten Bass Players of All Time.
So wifey has to work 1/2 a day today. They have to do that every few months on a Saturday. I dropped her off and came home half-asleep. After feeding the cats, I decided to grab the bass and get in a few mins of practice before I pass out again.
Last night, before bed, I read some more of Bass Guitar for Dummies. I went through the chapters on playing with a drummer, soloing and creating fills. It was basically chapters 6 & 7. Somewhere in the soloing and fills parts, it discussed more scales. Only, these weren’t 8-note scales. They only have 6 notes. The first is the Blues Scale, then comes the Minor Pentatonic and finally the Major Pentatonic.
