The Amazing Bass Player/ Bass Riff & Groove Thread

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I have always loved a good bass groove. This thread is to celebrate and recognize the best bass players of all time and to hopefully introduce us to some new riffs, grooves and players to add to the list.

Jaco Pastorius

There are others, but I figure I will let you guys (hopefully) introduce me to your favorites.
