    Most people here have probably seen Victor Wooten's video about bass solos, but in case you, the reader, haven't, check it out here. It's often reposted here, but I'm not just here to repost it. I'd also like to discuss what Mr. Wooten's talking about: Bass solos that groove!

    In other words, share bass solos you've found that have groove, and discuss, I suppose. Or post solos without groove for shiggles. :D

    My contribution, from a bassist not usually known for solos: Dave Ellefson, in Santiago, Chile.

    If all else fails, you can just do what Claypool does and lift a groove from someone else. It's not ideal, but damned if everyone's eyes aren't on him when he does it. Don't get me wrong, either. I love it. It works and he certainly gives his own twist on the stuff.

    Chris Squire's AWESOME solo at the end of "Does It Really Happen to You?" from Yes' Drama album - my favorite CS solo - it just OOZES groove.
