    It's a toss up between Subway to Venus and Around the world. It's really simple, but it sounds great.

    I liked Californication, And, Real Men Don't Kill Coyotes, and then the ever popular Higher Ground.

    Yeah, I forgot about Soul to Squeeze. That's a great one. And Under the Bridge, though soft, is beautiful.
    Have you heard the bass-based Smells Like Teen Spirit by the peppers: It's very good, though not one of the best, and it's a cool rendition.
     
  8. Pure gold:)
     
  9. Walkabout, Soul to Squeeze, Higher ground, My friends, Me + My friends, Stone Cold Bush

    I am shocked that no one mentioned "Knock Me Down". That bassline ruled!!!
     
  11. I've always like Aeroplane. All around the world is good too. But I love playing soul 2 squeeze, great crowd fave also!

    I like the laid back, Meters style funk on "Apache Rose Peacock" off of blood sugar sex magic. I also dig the greasy grooves during the instrumental interlude and the ending of "Funky Monks," where he plays some Bootsy-licious stizzuff.

    Mucho Gusto,

    Well im a metallica fan, so i like the song Around the wold!:D
     
  19. Almost every bassline off of "Blood Sugar Sex Magic", just because I thought his lines had matured so much at the point when it was recorded. "Mother's Milk" has a lot of good ones, too. :)

    "Soul To Squeeze" 'coz it's the first song I ever learned to play. I also won my girl with this song. I think.
