I always loved Flea's bassline in "Take the veil cerpin taxt" by The Mars Volta.
At 4:37 on - so smooth
Also TMV's breakdown in Cygnus - 3:34 on
I'm usually pretty impressed with buckethead, but that is a mess.
Disco had some awesome basslines.
This is like my favorite song of the month
No love for Billie Jean yet?
And it might not technically be a bass line, but it’s played on a bass so I’m claiming it...
How the flying FUCK did I miss this thread...
- Need some Pino Palladino.
- Larry Graham...
- Joe Dart (Vulfpeck) is a killer newer player.
- Need some Failure bass lines. Heavy as fuuuuuuck. Both Ken and Greg are amazing players.
- Jaco. Not a "bass line"...but still, unreal.
Limp Bizkit - Rearranged
Going back a bit, I always enjoyed Paul McCartney's bass playing in I Saw Her Standing There, but I think I remember reading somewhere that he lifted it from a Chuck Berry song.
Also Tony Iommi and a Bill Ward seem to get more attention for this song, but I can't get enough of Geezer's bass on War Pigs.
Good choice but probably not flashy or metal enough for this thread. Personally, I favor groove over flash. I really like the bass playing on Easy Lover by Phil Collins and Phillip Bailey.
Derek's slap bass at 2:30 and onward on
His other bass work in the group
RHCP - Parrallel Universe
Led Zeppelin - Ramble On
Paul Simon - "you can call me al "
If it hasn't been mentioned. Sick bass riff near the end. Paul plays a six string bass on the album and he's all but 5'3" . Impressive...
