I think my favourite (not necessarily the greatest) bassists are Victor Wooten, Les Claypool, Trevor Dunn, and Mike Gordon. The bassist from Stereolab has some pretty cool/quirky basslines that I like, although they're not exactly hard to play. That's about all I've got to say on the subject.

I saw that video some time ago. I decided to save it to my favourites on youtube.

I also found a video of Victor Wooten teaching his bass playing style. It's interesting to see when he plays it slow compared to when he plays it fast. YouTube - Victor Wooten - Bass Guitar Double Thumbing Lesson

How many times do I have to say it?

Burton is great, but he's not THAT great.

YOU DONT HAVE TO SAY IT AND I NEVER SAID WHAT NUMBER CLIFF WOULD BE, ALSO LIKE YOU SAID HE IS GREAT BUT WHO DECIDES WHOS GREAT AND WHOS NOT? I THINK IF YOU PLAY BASS THEN YOU CAN DECIDE.
