    Are you asking how many bassists have covered songs with bass in them? :eyebrow:

    Um, yeah. Please, describe a "bassy" song for us. Do you mean where the bass is the forefront of the tune? (carries the song)

    I'd say a bassy song would be something like "Hair" by Graham Central Station (Larry Graham). A personal favorite but one I can't imitate well.

    Songs I like to cover that are "bassy" would be songs like I Wish - Stevie Wonder, A lot of things by RHCP (gotta love Flea), I Want You Back - Jackson 5, What's Going On? - Marvin Gaye, Stomp - Brothers Johnson, I Was Made To Love Her - Stevie Wonder, Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who, The Lemon Song - Led Zeppelin.

    I like to dabble in a good variety of music. I always start at the roots first. Everyone else is just copying their style in some way. Might as well start with the best like Larry Graham, James Jamerson, and even JPJ and Entwhistle.

    Then... uhm, all songs with bass are bassy.

    So my vote goes for all songs.
