Cool Bass players

Hi, looking for Christian bass players to watch on you tube, can anyone give me some names and any other secular bassists that i should watch. Playing bass for about 6 months so looking for inspiration when i "hit the wall" when practicing.

I don't know of many Christian bass plays that I'd actually refer to you... other than Keith Hoerig from Five Iron Frenzy who is super awesome.

I'd recommend Victor Wooten. He is really really good. So good that I don't watch him because I'd just get depressed. But he's pretty stinkin good.

Andrew Goche was once the cover of Bass Player magazine. Fred Hammond is best known as a leader/songwriter but he came up as a bass player. Terrance Palmer with Israel Houghton and the New Breed.

The late basketball great and Smooth Jazz player Wayman Tisdale was a brother in Christ

Norm Stockton. He's the bassist for Lincoln Brewster. He's amazing and has instructional and bassist devotionals on youtube and on dvd. look him up.

do you want inspired or depressed?

Secular I'd suggest Stu Hamm, YouTube - Stuart Hamm - Charlie Brown Theme (Linus and Lucy)

or Jonas Hellborg, YouTube - Jonas Hellborg (from Mahavishnu Orchestra) - Little Wing (Hendrix Cover) Montreux 1984

but you'll never want to play bass again if you watch those guys!

I don't know if this guy is on Youtube, but the late Jackie Street was an excellent bass player IMHO. His name can be found in album credits for a number of Christian recording artists. Some that come to mind include Anointed, Jacqui Velasquez, Michiael W. Smith, Eli, and dcTalk among others.

Jackie Street

Great guy too, I've talked to him a couple of times at the NAMM show.

My favorite players are the sidemen type guys. The guys who come into a record date and lay down a killer groove. A few of them are Christians, like Abraham Laboriel , Nathan East (Claptons road player) and Tommy Sims, I also like Will Lee (Letterman) and Ricky Minor (Leno) has been killing it on the Tonight show. These guys have played on hundreds of CD's, have a lot of stuff on You tube. Another great groove player to check out is George Porter of the Meters. And Roger Moore of Newworldson is an excellent player.

Tal Wilkenfeld who toured with Jeff Beck is an absolute monster and can play rings around most professional male bass players out there.

But playing what's appropriate for the song and place is most important in worship settings. Strive to maintain a solid bottom, and listen closely. The bass has the ability to steer a song and the band. To be successful in a worship setting, the goal should be to make everyone else sound good. Church is no place to draw attention to oneself.

"Be transparent and worship by example...that they might see Jesus."

I very much agree with Steve.

It's great to listen to the Supermen of the bass world for a look at where the ceiling is, but I mostly like to listen closely to what I find on youtube videos from those who are making great praise and worship music right now.

Jesus Culture, Hillsong, David Crowder Band... I love to learn their grooves, and then make it my own without killing the spirit of the song.

Hey Mate -

I've been playing Guitar for 16 years, I've gotten together with 5 Praise Teams & about 8 Christian Rock Bands. I spent 5 years as a Bassist (there were TOO MANY Guitarist in my area). Just putting my details out - to show that I have a little experience.

I want to let you know - The Bassist of a Band is, seriously one of the Most Under-Rated of the Musicians of a Band. Many times they get over looked. This is mostly due to the more higher pitched instruments, catch more attention.

Instead of trying to find some Musicians to copy the style - Why not try to find a 'New Technique' or two to learn?

That way you can focus on being yourself. Remember, if your a Christian Musician - You're main Goal is to Praise God. Just focus on doing your Best. Maybe adding some new fills, would be your ticket. Good Luck!!!
