Before I start, this probably has been done before, but please, don't bash me if you feel this is just a repetition! What are your suggestion for bass riffs that define the song. Even if it's very simple, it is the main "sound" of the song, not blended in the backround. A riff that will always be remebered first before the guitar riff. One that first comes to mind when you think of that song. Even an "uneducated" person will recognize it. Just a classic bass riff. My favorites are: My Generation - The Who Money - Pink Floyd No More Tears - Ozzy Osbourne Jeremy - Pearl Jam Sweet Child O'Mine - Guns 'n Roses White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane New Year's Day - U2 That's all I can think of right now. Hey, thanks for your time guys.
