Most Educational Tunes
Here's a question I've been ruminating on for a while, and I'd be glad for some other's opinions:
Which songs, regardless of genre, difficulty or popularity, have the most to teach us as bass players?
It could be a particular track that has particularly exceptional note choice. One that teaches you how to really play slap bass. Maybe there's a track that demonstrates the use of an effect particularly well? Anything at all.
Whatever your thoughts are, post the track, and why you think it has a lot to give. At the least we may unearth a few gems and get a discussion going ;)
5. Conjunction Junction
4. I'm Just A Bill
3. Lolly, Lolly, Lolly, Get Your Adverbs Here
1. We the people, in order to form a more perfect union...
The Lemon Song comes to mind (especially since it's the topic of another thread started today). It's a great example of how to improvise while still maintaining a solid groove. Another example of this is Miles Davis' Right Off, with Michael Henderson on bass.
If we go for the most influential, we might as well go from chronological order. Start with the most primitive and basic blues and see how that influenced modern music. You'll be surprised how much there is to it. :)
Root, 3rd, 5th...
Or did you mean this all in terms of technique?
