Iím a amateur guitarplayer and believe that most bassplayers are boring. IMO there is one exception.
At 6 John Paul Jones. Iím a Led Zeppelin fan (yeah still) but never had a high esteem for John Paul Jones as a bassplayer. I saw and see him more as a great all-round musicianÖ
And Paul McCartney at three must be a joke. I respect the man very much, maybe heís the musician of the last century, but his bassplaying is amateur level.
Number one: John Entwistle. Thatís my man! What a player! I followed his bass lessons on youtube, who are removed, and my hands started wanting a bass guitar. As a Deep Purple fan I always wanted him in. That would have made a super super band! IMO that is.
Your statement proves you are an amateur guitarist. To claim that bass playing is "boring" is incredibly uninformed. "Open your ears & mind & your ass will follow", to paraphrase the old blues song...
