you're probably right that these kinds of threads are repeated a lot, but you have to understand that a lot of people who come here don't come here everyday, or even every week for that matter.

oh, some of my favorite bass players are:
paul chambers (dig p.c.)
ron carter
bruce thomas
stanley clarke
tom fowler
jimmy garrison
aston "familyman" barrett
simon gallup
bruce foxton
bootsy collins
