Are there any worthwhile VH basslines?

    I love VH's guitar riffs, but so far the basslines are boring. Does Michael Anthony play anything other than 8th notes of the same note?

    Any recommendations?

    Check out Poundcake (I've heard that is a good one) and Right Now, a passable line compared to his other monotonous stuff.

    Let me just say, that Michael Anthony is THE MOST underrated player in Rock music. Before anybody jumps up to dispute this, put on some headphones and listen to "Fair Warning", or "Women and Children First". Nothing monotonous there.

    I never realized just how great this guy is, until I picked up those two CD remasters, and played them in my phones. Stunning stuff. There's plenty for you to work on there. Enjoy.
