    This is a thread where you can talk about the greatest basslines of all time,or basslines you wish YOU made up.Mine are probably...

    Megadeth-Peace Sells
    AFI-The nephilim

    These basslines are both easy but just have that sound that seperates them from the others(well to me atleast).

    What are yours?

    Pink Floyd - "Money"
    Led Zeppelin - "The Lemon Song", "Ramble On", "What is and What Should Never Be", "Black Dog" and many more.
    Rush - "YYZ", "Red Barchetta", "Limelight" and many more.
    Cream - "Sunshine of Your Love"
    Thin Lizzy - "The Cowboy Song"
    Anything Jaco ever played.
  7. Two that spring to mind are both Flea bass lines!!! Californication - 'cos there's just so much space in it, ain't overly complicated but sounds great, and also the bass line for the Alanis Morrisette song - You Oughta Know.

    I'm also quite partial to Creeping Death by Metallica.
    And also Phantom of the Opera by Iron Maiden.

    I think all of the above would rate in my great basslines of all time list, but yes, I wish I'd written them too!
  8. "Are You In" by Incubus
    "Cosmic Girl" and "High Times" by Jamiroquai
    "Maxwell Murder" by Rancid
    "Plush" by Stone Temple Pilots

    just to name a few
  9. My favorite bass line at moment is from a Nickelback song called Never Again. Its not that hard but it sure is sweet. I recommend it for downloading.
    If you do download it, tell me what you think.
