So sit back and prepare to get low and funky with the ten most talented people with four or 5 or 6 or 8 or 12 strings and two X-chromosomes as we present the Top Ten Female Bass Players. Sean was never a flashy bass player — she was just very, very solid. Her heavy, funky, aggressive lines were big, bold, and in your face — typical of the dance-driven styles she played and continues to play and part of the definitive sound of those bands. Later on, when Pixies were taking a break, Kim re-formed a band with her sister called The Breeders where she took up guitar and lead vocals, but still wrote songs that were bass-driven alternative pop rock. Her straightforward but creative style as well as her wide-ranging influence makes her a solid addition to this list. Melissa is one of those really solid players with a long career playing in unflashy bands that just need a solid rhythm line.
