I was just trying to find whose the fastest bassist out there...and one of the sites out there says...this guys is one of the fastest bassist ever...he's an Indian and his name is Jayen Varma. He can play 36 and above notes per second. He is a freelance bassist and has his own band called “Indian Epics”


Hot or not? [as in playing only...lol]

Not the fastest, but I don't see how Muse's bassist can play that Hysteria riff, for that whole song. I'm a guitarist, and I picked up a bass to try that, and its REALLY hard. ._.;;

I believe the most mentioned will be something like Billy Sheehan, Juan Alderete and John Myung. And then the fast slappers like Victor Wooten or Bill Dickens.

Jaco could let it rip too sometimes. For example in Port of Entry by Weather Report.

All I can say about your curiosity:

I didn't know the guy in Satriani's band was so effin' good.

Can't wait to see those guys in action!!

bear in mind, measuring a guitarists/bassists overall skill on how fast they can play is like rating a footballer on how nice his beans on toast is.

and 36 notes a second? get real.

fastest bassist? why not best bassist. i dont care how fast if he can play, what if it doesnt sound particularly good, melodic, or soulful? like Malmsteen and Satriani
