Although Phil Lesh has become one of the
most famous and prolific bass guitar players in the history of rock and roll, the master musician had never even picked up
the instrument before Jerry Garcia asked him to be a part of his new rock band. He essentially learned on the job, figuring
out his role as he went. Because he didn't know what a traditional bass guitar was supposed to sound like, he didn't play
traditionally. He used his background of classical and jazz music to influence his performances, which is what made him a
legend. Now, he is considered to be one of the pioneers of a new age for the bass guitar, and continues to come up with new
ways to wow audiences with his enormous talent.
