I know there will be differences in opinion here but some define their ultimate J bass sound
Kind of a low rumbly sound followed by a FRAPP! then a gurgling sound.?
Marcus Miller AND Jaco
John Paul Jones.
Listen to his bass on Led Zeppelin II, especially The Lemon Song (during the bass and vocal breakdown) and What Is And What Should Never Be. I love that tone.
I think Marcus Miller really typifies the 70's J bass sound. And Jaco for the 60's j bass sound.
Geddy Lee on the Rush in Rio live album. The track Roll the Bones comes to mind. Now there's some J tone that'll put hair on your chest.
Thick, smooth, and gritty all in one.
Geddy Lee in the "Moving pictures" album.
john paul jones...whole lotta love on song remains the same !!! and yes jaco! !...and yes moving pictures!!!! cant believe im in full agreement.
mid range bump
Listen to any 1970's-era Earth Wind & Fire (Verdine White) -- especially "Shining Star."
Mid range growl
stolen from another thread.
THAT would be a definitive J-Bass sound.
