So, as many of you may know, Green Day just released three albums, ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tré!. Mike Dirnt's bass playing is better on these 3 records than it was on 21st Century Breakdown, and also American Idiot. But what interests me is his tone. It's nothing like any of his previous tones. Here are a few songs where his bass is prominent, I'll also mark the time period where the bass is most prominent. Any idea how he gets that tone? 1. Nuclear Family (Uno!)
