First 3 Metallica Records
2 minutes to midnight/Wrathchild by Iron Maiden
Faith No More records
Look up Chas Chandler, Billy Sheen
Primus records
Listen to The Crusade (song)/Becoming the Dragon by Trivium
Dream Theater

I know it's largley Metal but you'll learn even more techniques from those bands and records

what he comes up with off the cuff is pretty amazing, but yeah learn stuff from other bands, learn radiohead basslines that are the complete opposite

If you really want to play RHCP, why not just take Flea's basslines and modify them to make your own? Still better than just covering them all the time, at least you're doing something creative.

Listen to more stuff. Try some Atheist, Cynic, Racer X, and Primus. And please, type right; it makes it easier for everyone to read.

Muse. then try some Talas, a little Primus, and if you really want some challenges, try Micheal Manring.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Have you listened to every band in the world??
And TS just venture more deeply into a new genre for you, such as funk or jazz like anarkee mentioned, or even country or reggae or something.

I think funk would be especially good for you to get into, you seem to enjoy flea's basslines so learning where his inspirations come from would benefit you if you're trying to come up with some Flea inspired bass, instead of just sounding like a clone.

And Anarkee what would be some good artists if I was looking to get into jazz? Preferably something bass orientated?

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

Although I am not anarkee, I would recommend having a listen to Tower of Power, Parliament and Sly and the Family Stone to get started.

Thanks jack but you seem to have misread that a bit, unless i pressed the wrong buttons but i want jazz recommendations. However no doubt what you suggested would the help TS if he does decide to get into funk.
