So I was just listening to 'Goats Head Soup' for the first time in a while and, although I was enjoying the album from the get-go, it wasn't until 'Silver Train' came on that the bass playing really caught my attention. I googled the personnel for that song, assuming it must be someone other than Bill Wyman and I turned out to be correct. It is in fact Keith Richards on bass (probably not news to most of you). This isn't the first time this has happened to me when listening to the Stones. The first time was when 'Live With Me' came on from the 'Let it Bleed' album. There are a bunch of others too. Anyway, although Bill Wyman is a part of the Stones' sound (having played on most of their records), to me his bass lines often go unnoticed unless I really focus on them. I suppose in a way that is a good thing as they are serving the song and not getting in the way, but on the other hand they aren't particularly memorable or well crafted in my opinion, unlike those of Paul McCartney or John Paul Jones (or even Keith) for example. I get these are completely different bands, but still, as a bass player, it's often Keith's bass lines that really draw me in and make me want to learn them. He actually sounds like a bass player too and not just a guitarist playing bass (which is often the case when a guitarist switches to bass). I've seen other threads on a similar topic, but feel free to share your thoughts. Also, please point me in the direction of some of your fave Wyman bass lines. I'd love to get more into his playing, it just hasn't caught my attention much yet. Thanks!
