Alex Webster
 
What do you guys think of Alex Webster of Cannibal Corpse? I think he is a fucking amazing bassist and I defy anyone to say he sucks. Did any of you see him playing on The Wretched Spawn DVD. Holly fuck he's just unbelivable.

alex is the shit, i think the only better bassist in metal is steve digiorio... ive never heard any victor wooten and if hes anything like yngwie or joe, count me out.

Trendkill_420 2004-09-14 23:02

vic's not metal.

I've never actually listened to the dudes bass.
But honestly as a bassist, i find "metal bassists" to be the worst. But hey I'll check him out. Prove me wrong ;)

I dont know much about bass but hes all like BASS! Hes good, just check him out some way.

Innards-Decay 2004-09-15 18:30

hes a master in finger style bass fretted bass. Most bassists ive met only play pick... :mad: but hes just really fast, really technical, and creates inventive basslines.

Reguardless of the giant genre gap between the two, Les Claypool is infinitely better than him. ;)

I don't find his playing to be anything special. But then again the only bassist that actually shows any kind of skill is of course, Les Claypool. Sorry, I like les. :)

Alex is god :)

I seen him play with CC at Wacken this year :vampire:
Unfortunately they couldnt play Hammer Smashed Face because its banned in Germany so I didnt get to hear the bass at the start which I love so much :cool:

As someone said, Steve Digiorgio is also amazing. I think Alex excels at rhythm and generally being able to play any riff (you try playing Dead Human Collection accurately and fast!) that CC write, Digiorgio is more melodic and his work on The Fragile Art of Existence (Control Denied) shows that.
