You Will Probably Laugh At This
Many years ago, a popular bass player's magazine used to publish a list of songs that had interesting bass lines but most people wouldn't admit to listening to. The point was to introduce bassists to people who usually limit what they listen to. Earlier today I found one of the old issues and it suggested "Easy Come, Easy Go" by of all people Bobby Sherman. Bobby was a TV star in the 1960s and was also a popular recording artist. So I downloaded the song from Itunes and was blown away by the bass playing. Great use of octaves and kind of James Jamerson like in terms of the patterns played. At first, I figured he used studio musicians. I couldn't find any information on who the musicians were on the song but what surprised me is that Bobby Sherman was a self taught bass player and probably played bass on the song. Definitely worth checking out if you can focus on the bass playing.

Joe Osborn played bass on that track.
