victor wooten vs billy sheehan

I had a talk with my friend who said that billy sheehan is not good at bass. In contrast, I think he is amazing and has much more experience. I know that victor wooten is very talented as well. What do you guys think?

Thanks

I think they are both good at bass. That is pretty much a fact. Sure, their songwriting/bassline/hair metal band may suck in your opinion, but they are both talented.

I'd go Wooten, simply because he is black. Don't make a "versus" thread, because what is the point? You want to know if people like wooten or sheehan more? I'll tell you now, this board will probably say wooten.

BTW, lurk more, post less.

Any songs worth downloading that will give me an idea of Garrison's chops and playing?

I think is as pointless as 'Who could benchpress more' conversations.

But i prefer Wooten, not saying he is better just that I prefer to listen to him over Sheehan.

Besides the fact that this thread is illegal, it's completely stupid. While your at it, try comparing a jazz drum god like Gene Krupa to the vocalist from GWAR and tell me who's "better".

Now... if we're talking in terms of who is more technically well-rounded, the answer is Wooten. No contest. To argue that there is one is to argue against all laws of physics.

Won't take long before a mod comes on the forum and starts their mod duties with immediate effect by closing this thing...

For me I prefer Wooten, also I would say he is perhaps a more versatile bass player.

neither of them would ever be able to write a cool punk bassline so hoppus is way better than both wooten and sheehan

who are wooten and sheehan anyway?
