    Just wondering what some of you feel are the the "funnest" and most recognizable bass lines. Lets put this at the most difficult level of "Around the World"'s bassline by Flea. I'm sure I'd love to play something like "My Name is Mud" by Claypool, but that's a bit out of my league.
    I'll start. Funnest- Around the world, flea or
    Lunchbox, Twiggy (Marilyn Manson)
    Most recognizable- Longview, Greenday

    Your universe is pretty far from mine...but you asked.

    For me?

    Peg - Steely Dan
    Signed, Sealed, Delivered - Stevie Wonder
    Eight Days A Week - Beatles

    As you can see, none are particularly difficult (technically, although they are hard to nail correctly), they're just fun to play, and put a big fat smile on my face without fail.

    Super Freak (Rick James be-otch)
    Money - Pink... (what was it?)
    Ramble On - Led Zeppelin

    Feelin' Alright-Joe Cocker

    and I can't think of the name of it... but its the theme of an old TV show. Henry Mancini wrote it and it goes 1 1 2 1 b3 1 5 4 (over and over and over!)
