We made it to the top of the list, and this year’s reader favorite bassist is Geddy Lee. Lee returned to the stage this year, including appearances with Alex Lifeson. In addition, some old school Rush was included along the way.
Leland Sklar is a long-time reader favorite, and for good reason. One of the busiest bassists on the scene, a handful of videos with the session legend made their way to NT – spanning multiple years. He’s #2 on the Reader Favorite Bassists list.
Charles Berthoud has some mind-blowing abilities. This is evident not only to us, but to No Treble readers as well, who routinely watch and comment on his videos. He lands at #3 on this year’s Reader Favorite Bassists list.
For the second time in two years, Ellen Alaverdyan lands on the annual Reader Favorite Bassists list. The young bassist’s playing and videos are infectious, and she’s making huge wave. So we’re not suprised to see her here once again.
The first time we shared a video by Rebecca Johnson was back in 2011. Over the years, more and more videos have come along, and we’ve continued to feature them. She’s #5 on this year’s reader favorites list.
We have a newcomer on the annual Reader Favorite Bassists list. News of Alex Lifeson forming a new band was very big news, and Andy Curran was selected for the bass chair. Curran lands at #6 on this year’s list.
I’m not sure, but I believe Victor Wooten has been on every single Reader Favorite list since we began, and no surprise there. Wooten lands at #7 on the 2022 list.
Les Claypool had a busy year in 2022. One of the biggest stories was Primus’s “A Farewell to Kings” tour. But that wasn’t all. Here are the stories and videos that landed Claypool on at #8 on this year’s list.
No surprise, Marcus Miller is another bassist who regularly lands on the annual Reader Favorite Bassists lists here. Miller’s videos this year were a huge hit. Here are the videos that landed him on this year’s list.
Tony Levin is no stranger to the reader favorites list, and he makes it once again for 2022. Levin was busy this year with many projects, as usual. He lands at #10 on this year’s list.
