As an electric bass player, I'd like to add that Donald "Duck" Dunn is a bonafide Electric Bass God
and one of the absolute masters
of "feel over chops
." Also, for what it's worth, he's white
The eloquence and power of Dunn's basslines make my case, especially the ballads: listen to his work on Otis Redding's "Try A Little Tenderness" and Sam & Dave's "When Something Is Wrong With My Baby" and you'll hear just how great a bassist can be. But if you want Dunn's pure soul power riffs, try the basslines on Sam & Dave's "Soul Man" or Arthur Conley's "Sweet Soul Music" and turn that bass UP.
My advice to would-be electric bassists: check out the Duck before you try to emulate Victor Wooten. It's easy to slave away at the fretboard and impress your friends with some fast-finger feats, but emulating Dunn's feel is surprisingly challenging--just try and you'll see!
