    The Ocean - U2

    It's off their first album and it has a really nice little arpeggio bass part with what sounds like some phase shifting on it.

    Hell no! I don't know how this Phase Shifter idea for Sir Psycho got started. To me it sounds nothing like a phase shifter at all :p
     
  8. I think that's an envelope filter... the DOD FX25 I believe

    Wrong again! :p

    Well, about the FX25 part. It was a filter, at least. The explanation most appealing to me is the "Original Mutron III with dying batteries". Just sounds the most likely to me.

    Alphonso Johnson on "Hip Pocket", George Duke\Billy Cobham: Live on Tour in Europe. True Mutron swirl from a great funkster!

    "For The Love Of Money" by the O'Jays from their "Ship Ahoy" album. (I think it's also teh theme song for Donlad Trump's TV show "The Appretice"

    Studio session bass master Anthony Jackson created a bass line so good that he was credit as a co-writer of the song.

    The phasing was his idea as he brought along his own custom phaser.

    If that weren't enough he sets the standard for pick playing on bass with his 16th note cross picking technique.
