Although Tom Scholz is best known as a guitarist and songwriter for Boston, have you ever listened to the bass lines he wrote for the songs ? In life he was first a pianist (left hand as bass line) then started playing guitar relatively late in his development. My understanding is the Boston songs' bass lines for at least the first two albums, and probably more, were written by Scholz. I find the basslilnes very melodic and contoured, adding quite a good dimension to the songs. Any commentary and music theory analysis about the Boston basslines style would be welcomed.
