    Alright crap on that stuff that i wrote.Its just that I need to come up with a solo and i was looking around at styles to play.Come on somebody help me, if i screw up this solo i don't think my band will want me to do another one.
     
  3. FG I want to say that your name is bad but yet ever time I release you I smile.

    How about filling out you profile, how about giving some more info. Please. I could name a hand full of great rock bass solos, a hand full of great Jazz solos, a hand full of great Funk . . . Blah blah blah.

    Do not expect a response to a question that has no information.

    The best bass-solo I can remember now... is Richard Bona - Bona Fortuna... You can download this file over napster or WINMX... It's a great solo where Richard really shows what he can, and that's something. Richard comes from Kamerun and I saw him live in Stockholm 2000. That was an experience I will never forget... Download the song and you will know what I mean;)

    Anesthesia-Pulling Teeth by Metallica, and Bassically by Black Sabbath are my favorites.
     
  8. John Entwistle's bass riff's from "Can't You See the Real Me." Try it.

    The trippiest bass solo that anyone has ever done in any genre is, by far, Jaco's "Portrait of Tracy". No contest. Don't even bother bringing anything else up, because it's the best.

    Of course, it might not be appropriate for you. In fact, it probably isn't. =/ So, yeah... more info, please. =)

    Don't give me grief, but Brian Rithchie from the Viloent Femmes has some really cool guitar style bass solos. His sound is kind of an odd acoutsic+pick+light strings sound, but it's definitely worth a listen!

    Flea's outro solo on "Coffee Shop" off of One Hot Minute ... not that hard if you've got your speed up to scratch. something like that should knock the footwear attachments offa your band mates :D

    or primu (les Claypool) tommy the cat off of rhinoplasty cause that ukin rules
     
  18. Jaco's solo on 'Havona' gives me tingles every time I listen to it.

    I really dig Keith Horne's "20 Over Dixie" solo.



    and about a million others, you've got to narrow it down.
     
  20. Marcus Miller is nice.
