Alright, I'm sure this has been discussed before, but not too recently at least. Alright, lets pretend you are around a complete moron who looks at you and says, "Duuuuuhhllllllrrhhhhrrrr what does the bass do?" And you didn't have your bass around, but you had access to any song in the entire world, what song would you use to define the bass. My choice (for now) "The Real Me" by The Who. Why? Well The Ox's bassline is just so insane, yet he is still holding the song together. It remains rhythmic while being lead esque. THAT'S cool. Alright, your turn.
