Since there is no such thing as the best bass player, I decided to create this list in reply to those endless requests for "the best bassist". Note that I list those players, in no way do I play in their league. Not even close. :)

This is an incomplete list of electric bass players I consider to be Bassmonsters. That is in their respective way they are special and stick out in my point of view and those who will give me feedback on this. They advance the art/craft and are an inspiration for many other great players. I will moderate this only briefly so beware this list may be quite subjective. :)

The longer I look the more I find. There are way more Bassmonsters out there, than I initially thought. That's great, actually! More good stuff to listen to/study. :)
