    In your opinion, please tell who you think is the best bassist. I realize there are a ton of them but I will list some in a poll of who I think are great. Also, with an option to write-in.

    This a tough one. I coudn't just name one. Les Claypool comes to mind. Victor Wooten, Jaco Patruis, Charles Mingus, Ron Carter.... Too Many great ones.

    This is all true. Hence, the write-in option. I am willing to read all opinions and statements of people. I like learning and exploring musicians. Thanks for the post.

    I can't say best because I don't know that much but my favorite bassist has always been Jack Casady.
    This video typifies his style - gets me HIGH man

    Threads like these always quickly morph into assholes posting the most obscure bassists out there to prove how edgy they are...
