Best Bassline Ever...
« on: 24 August, 2014, 10:38:25 pm »
Anyone got some love for the guitarists phat-fingering siblings?

Dunno about greatest evers- too many good ones too choose from, But I love the bassline from Flux of Pink Indians 'Myxomatosis', every time I hear it, up goes the volume. Simple as hell- but bouncy and catchy.

Just a little rough and tumble, Judge man.

Although Clairvoyant is damned close actually good call!

I went through an embarrassing stage of trying to learn bass and I started here...

The Sisters of Mercy always knew the value of a good bassline…

The Justice department has a good re-education programme-it's called five to ten in the cubes.

Phil Lynott's opening to Dancing In the Moonlight gets my vote:

Then there's the fast and furious bassline in Ace of Spades:

Then there's the absolute bass genius of Steve Harris. Being the creator and driving force of Iron Maiden, he makes sure his bass is at the forefront of most numbers.  Here are some superb examples:

Good choices SM - I love how absurdly busy Steve Harris' bass playing is when you strip away the song.

IT HAS NO BUSINESS BEING THAT BUSY but its wonderful.

Surely Alb has some good 'uns to throw in here - A juicy Claypool?

Ride on

No sharing of bass-related videos can go without a bit of Bootsy ... on the one

Why the Beatles are so good. There was no reason to put this much into the bass line!
