i agree whole heartedly.i think mudvayne is awful, but i have all of their albums because of the rhythm section. i was lucky enough to hang out and burn with ryan on their LD 50 tour in lauderdale. his tone is fantastic, hes very down to earth, and believe me when i say his playing only hints at his vast understanding of music.
personally ive been playing for a little over 10 years, influences include but are not limited to;
cliff burton, james jamerson, john paul jones, ray brown, pastorious, ryan martinie, digiorgio, both the boys from cynic and the guy from the locust( im not sure on his name) have been huge rhythmic influences. steve harris, alex webster, i could go on like this but im sure 99% of these guys have been covered. the most helpful experience in my development has been diversity. not discriminating the styles ive worked with has really opened up my thinking process on bass.

im old

haha, thats right about 10 years ago. i got my first bass (a gift from my pops) when i was 14. i didnt start to seriously pursue it (theory lessons, jazz study, etc.) until i was about 19 or 20 though, and had to completely relearn the instrument (my fret hand mechanics were awful and i played with a pick only until that point).

I've been playing for near 2 years. Geddy Lee got me started on bass, with Flea being the #2 inspiration.

And I have to thank Tattered. He's been a great help.

Ahh, no probs dude! thanks!

I'd have to say one of my recent influences has to be Rocco Prestia from funk/soul band Tower Of Power, his fast ghost noting and bass lines are really good, id recommend anyone to try the following songs.

Tower of power:

Soul with a capital S
Funk the dumb stuff
What is hip

Cheers.

rocco prestia

oh hell yeah, i didnt know there was another TOP fan in here.prestias' ghost notes are flawless, i took alot away from listening to him when i was learning funk and have since applied some of his ideas in a metal context. it blew me away how much ghosted notes add to the overall groove and swing of a song. also he really is one of the masters of playing busy in the context of the piece (rather than being busy for the sake of being busy).

hey is it just a coincidence that those three songs are the only ones i could find tabs for on the internet but Rocco is great. He plays almost flawlessly, and I saw a short video of him from bass day 98.. I think. But Good funk bassists ( like Rocco and Jaco) are easily some of the best in the world.
