that have an excellent yet understated bassline. Thanks.
Any style. I'm thinking Country but I don't know much of that style.
Daisy Through Concrete - Eels
In Liverpool - Suzanne Vega
Deanna Carter...May be counted ad 6/8. Try it.
Jitterbug Waltz. I like the Eric Dolphy Version.
I'm not really sure what you mean by "excellent yet understated" bass line, are you talking about a composed line, an improvised line, a counter melody? Could you provide an example of what you're looking for in 4/4, if you don't know one in 3? There's plenty of nice waltzes out there, in a wide variety of musical styles, but isn't it kind of up to you to play something "excellent yet understated"?
Walk on the Ocean - Toad the Wet Sprocket
"Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds". I don't know if that fits your definition of "understated", but it is a relatively simple bass line that conveys the rhythm and melody quite nicely in my opinion.
I use that rhythm all the time when I'm running to keep my alternating foot strike/breathing pattern in synch.
Any kind of line will do.
I'm just looking to expand my musical radar. I'm not looking for anything in particular.
Yes. I'm also interested in hearing recordings of lines that someone else has come up with that wouldn't occur to me.
enjoy Toad the Wet Sprocket.
Waiting for an Angel- Ben Harper
Sorry, I've got a cold and it's making me cranky.
But all this is just speculation, I don't have any clue as to whether or not you've heard any of this or all of or if you're not looking for this kind of thing at all...
Strawberry Fields Forever
I Me Mine
Dig a Pony
But then again most Beatles songs have great basslines.
Thanks Ed. I look forward to listening to those after work.
Hope you feel better.
"Sweet Lady" by Brian May, performed by Queen on A Night at the Opera.
Ready for my awesome suggestion?
