  Bassist - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A bassist is a musician who plays a double bass or electric bass (also referred to as bass guitar).
Bassists play what is known as a bass line, which is a single monophonic line of music, which determines the key, chords and style of the song.
The bassist often plays the root of the chords, pedal tones or ostinatos and bass riffs.

 Bass guitar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bassists trying to emulate the sound of a double bass will often pluck the strings with their thumb, and use their fingers to anchor their hand and partially mute the strings (partially muting the strings creates a short, "thumpy" tone for the notes which mimics the sound of an upright bass).
While the influential bassist Jaco Pastorius and many with him preferred to pluck them very close to the bridge for a bright and sharp sound, many prefer the rounder sound they get by plucking closer to the neck, mostly near the neck pickup.
Tony Levin, the bassist for King Crimson and Peter Gabriel, pioneered the use of wooden dowels affixed with velcro to the tips of the index and middle fingers and used to strike the strings of the bass.

Doug's reputation as a thoroughly prepared and versatile bassist, has kept him one of the Central Coast's busier bassists.

"Winner of the 1995 Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition on bass, Hall’s vision is one that is unlike that of many bassists in his style of composition, his choice of instrumentation and his role as a bassist.
While he’s certainly capable of--and in fact excels in--the expectation of the bassist as time-keeper and the propulsive foundation for a jazz group, Hall seems to prefer an investigation of cultures and an inviting appeal to the listener to consider the thoughts he presents.
Pianist Jim Ridl, who has performed numerous times with Hall and who can metamorphose into a musical tidal wave when the need arises, blends in with the overriding concept to sensitively accompany and enlarge the harmonic intentions of Hall’s compositions...
