Need I say more? I've only heard audio versions of Billy Sheehan's solos off his site, but now I'm tempted buy some of his work.

I've whored a him in this forum a few times before. He's probalby the best rock bass player.

I've seen that before, but lower quality.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why he's my favourite bass player ever.

I think he redefines the word 'stamina', I'd love to hear some of his non-solo work.

Search any Mr Big. I can't recommend any because I don't know them very well but everything I've heard is insane.

I'm not a bass fan and I loved that.

meh, most of the video was boring untill he started trading off licks with Paul Gilbert. There were some good parts but most of it was just him playing fast. My ears arent' really developed enough to enjoy that type of bass playing since I'm used to guitar.

His solo work really isn't "solo work." His solo albums are just like any band other band album with vocals(Billy is the singer). It isn't him just playing bass without any other instruments. I download one his albums a while ago but I found it boring so I deleted it. I usually tend to like most albums the second time around but I didn't feel like giving it a second chance.

Same here, once I got past the amazingness of his speed it got boring.

I do agree, he has his fair share of wankage, this is probably the reason why I wan't to hear some of his songwork.


EDIT: Didn't see all of Jebus' post, thanks for the info.

Am I the only one who thought it was really, really good?

I find it funny how some bass players like Sheehan try to be guitar players by playing that in that "soloing" manner while some guitar players try to be bass players by tunning their guitars stupidly low.

EDTI: This reminds me. I have to make a Racer X thread.

I thought it was good, but I'll admit I probably won't say the same thing in a weeks time. As of lately I've been looking for bass players who have a 'solid groove' as it were. I used to be a total Cliff Burton obsessive.

I'm not used to the sound of bass strings like you are so I couldn't enjoy it as much. Notes on bass guitars aren't as defined and distinguishable as in regular guitar making it harder to listen to. If what he played was transfered an octave up and played on to a guitar, chances are that I'd love it.

I love bass solos. The rumbling change of pitch suits my ears somehow.

I tend to enjoy slap bass solos more than the type sheehan plays.

on another note, did you listen to those songs I uploaded in your bass thread?

Which thread?

On a somewhat related note, I'm inspired. I'll be learning this. (http://www.mxtabs.net/tabs.php?path=Bass,b,9081,Billy+Sheehan,Nv+43345,7 4913) Wish me luck.

Hm... Well, two minutes would have been enough =/. It's the best bass solo I've ever heard though. Anyway, google videos? That's awesome! (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8181105912190564128&q=manowar) Really awesome. (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-1333230937823289047&q=judas+priest) Hahaha

I didn't like it very much.

I play bass, and I'm not saying it was easy. He's probably the most talented bassist in the world, but It sounded all alike. He could be playing the same thing over and over for all I knew. It was just insanely fast. I like actual songs. Like Flea, Stu, Jaco or Les.

That was some cool bass playing, just sent me on a big search to find a clip I saw months ago of a guy doing amazing things on acoustic guitar too...couldnt find it though

Here's another video with Sheehan I just uploaded. This is actually a Steve Vai tune but there's a duet between Sheehan and Vai 2 minutes into the video. It's not exactly favorite Vai song but the duet is awesome.

Paul Gilbert?

He's right. He can't play flamengo.

*ahem* flamenco.

It was still good, though.

EDIT: I prefer this one anyway- http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-4163820284644745223&q=paul+gilbert

Paul Gilbert needs to stick to the metal and pop. He can't do flamengo (stfu, I spell things anyway I want!)

Well I've got to say I was personally more impressed by the drummer. My god, that was a hell of a groove he had on during the guitar/bass battle.
