How do I nominate a player? Nominations now closed.

Next month sees the launch of the inauguralMusicRadar Bass Expo(27-28 February), a two day online bass extravaganza featuring top quality product demos, exclusive interviews and expert tutorials. In celebration, MusicRadar - in association with Orange Amps - is asking you to put hand to keyboard and nominate your pick for the greatest bassist of all time.

Geddy Lee? Cliff Burton? Carol Kaye? Jaco Pastorius? Jack Bruce? John Paul Jones? There are hundreds of low-end heroes out there to choose from, or you can use the opportunity to shine a light on an unrecognised talent - the decision is yours.

Just let us know your nomination via the MusicRadar Facebook and Twitter, or by commenting on this article. If you have more than one, even better. Just drop us the names and a reason why and we'll do the rest.

The nominations round closes 24 January, so you have a week from now to let us know your pick before we collate the results and draw up the shortlist.

Once we've got the final list of nominees we'll open the voting, with the results of this no-doubt closely fought battle for bass supremacy to be revealed on the first day of the Bass Expo.

Happy picking! Or, err, plucking...
