Just for fun, I am comparing three versions of "Mustang Sally" bass line: Wilson Picket (original), Buddy Guy (blues), and Committments (modern/R&B) The three links below all begin at the verse, all played by the same teacher. Wilson Picket: I like the Buddy Guy version of the bass line; it has a bit of funk (1/16th octave notes thrown in), and is more melodic. The Committments strikes me as a simplified version of Wilson Picket, and is the least interesting of the three. However, when I hear the entire bands, I prefer the Committments version. The Committments sound is stripped down, with more emphasis on the vocals. I would love to hear the Committments full band but with the Buddy Guy bass line.
