Current favourite basslines?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Tzetze, Feb 6, 2003.

  1. As usual, I don't know if this is in the right section...

    My favourite basslines seem to change more often than my boxers.

    Currently I'm enjoying playing Michael Dimins arrangements of "Autumn Leaves" and "Misty".
    Also, "Come together" by The Beatles and Marcus Millers awesome version of it too.

    Another very simple song that I can't get enough of lately is "Pounding" by Doves. It's *very simple but has a great beat and sound to it.

    I'm also still working on "River People" by Weather Report. Unsuccessfully trying to get those semiquavers down.

    #5 on my list is Bach's Prelude in G Major.

    So, what's your current top 5 tunes that you can't stop playing?

    Edit: oops, I can't count... that's 6
  2. misty is so cool. I love Channel one suite. My favorite is probably pyramid.

    I've been on an Earth Wind & Fire kick for about four months now. Verdine White's playing is so... perfect. Not flashy, not monstrously technical... but with a perfect sense of timing and ensemble. My faves (I'm trying to get these down one by one):

    Serpentine Fire
    Saturday Nite
    Mighty Mighty
    Magic Mind

    Good stuff.

    "Come on, Come over" is a Jaco song, not a weather report song.

    Teen town is probably my all time favorite bassline, that and "reza"...and "a remark you made"

    most jaco songs are my favorite bassline..just depends on my mood.

    Thanks! I couldn't remember for sure, and couldn't remember which CD I've got it on, since I was at work then. :D

    Thanks for all the responses, guys.
