Essential Bass Players

Part of every good bassist's development is listening to and learning from the best and most inspiring bass players of all-time. I have compiled lists of bassists in each style whom I feel are essential listening. Listen and learn from the best! In lessons, we will discuss what makes these bassists so great , learn their basslines, and analyze them. These lists aren't complete. There are so many great bassists I can't begin to list them all. It's a good start!
