Pretty sure it's me. I'm so underrated, I'm unrated. But I'm not that bad. I mean if you've heard of someone, how underrated can they be?  

Underrated is one word, by the way.

Ah so! I know lots of bass players who are decent guitar players. Something about those big strings. There's a pretty decent underrated guitar player in every town in the country, no doubt. I know several.

   I don't know who is the most underrated, but I'll add "John Lodge" to the mix. He is the bass player for the Moody Blues, and a very good one. (Listen to "Story in your eyes") But he also plays rhythm guitar on some songs while Justin Hayward plays lead.

   Greg Lake is a good guitar player.

There are a few famous folks who became famous for other stuff and have been overlooked for how good they are as musicians; Glen Campbell, James Taylor, Justin Beiber... err, no.  

Anyway, I WAS serious about the first two I mentioned!

Playing bass the past few years has been what forced me to learn the fretboard.  At least on EADG!

Seriously, I'm a strummer and box-pattern player.  I knew the notes on the low E and high e strings by fret.

Being dissatisfied with my keyboard entered bass playing in my home recordings, I bought a cheap SX SPJ 62 bass about 5 years ago (basically a sort-of copy of a 1962 custom P-bass) to see if I couldn't improve with a 'real' bass.  I play with a pick.

I now play regularly in two different church worship teams.  I've learned more about learning notes on the fretboard from this experience, than 25 years of playing at acoustic guitar. 

If you ever get a chance to take a John Standefer workshop in your area (John is a Larrivée endorsed artist and Winfield winner amongst other honors and accolades), he pounds home the message that learning all the notes on the fretboard is one of the keys to creative and comfortable lead playing and rhythm playing, for that matter.

So, are you saying you are the most underated bass player out there?

Amen. The ability to name every note you play is a big step towards ... underratedness.

Yes, Bromberg is soooo good, and so is another David...  Rawlings that is.  David Rawlings is definitely my current favorite.

Rawlings is fantastic.  Michael Daves is fantastic also.

The late Terry Kath of the band Chicago, I know he was mostly an electric player , but his knowledge of
chords and his feel were so damn good.

Anyway, I WAS serious about the first two I mentioned!
Beiber has a fair amount of talent as a young musician underneath that disposable pop for tween girls. In terms of chops I don't think Taylor is much of a player, though I am a fan of his music. Campbell was a typical Nashville monster guitarist.
