Research: Female bass players


Meshell Ndegeocello is 48 years old and was born in Berlin, Germany. Her career started in the mid 90’s as she played bass on Madonna’s track  “I’d rather be your lover” and also performed a rap in the song. Meshell has been nominated for nine Grammy awards in eight different categories.

The bass players that had an impact on the to way she first thought of bass was Prince, Sting, Stevie Wonder, Sade and Paul Denman.

Watching a video of her performing I noticed she closes her eyes but still manages to connect with the audience also I read in a interview that she gets her ideas by observation and when she creates bass riffs she pictures dots with line connecting.
