What are the coolest basslines ever?
Take a moment to consider your post please, you've basically just asked the equivalent of "What's the best blade of grass in the world to ever exist". Be specific man, that question is impossible, cool in itself is a loosley defined word that means different things to different people. Now if you asked for the "Funkiest bassline ever" for example that would narrow the field down at least to a sensible size.
where's the pol?
In your opinion what is the coolest bass line ever?
that "we didn't start the fire" song of course. Why would you even ask? NoOb or something?
edit: I didn't even look. You are, sorry about that
wow..that's a tough one. what comes to mind?
The last part of "Brian Wilson" (Barenaked Ladies)....
"Are You Gonna Go My Way" (Kravitz)
When you gonna learn? - Jamiroquai (Andrew Levy)
Travelling without moving - Jamiroquai (Stuart Zender)
Sir Psycho sexy - RHCP (Flea)
Thank you falletin me be mice elf agin - Victor Wooten
Teen town - Weather Report (Jaco Pastorius)
My favourite things - Outkast (Aaron Mills)
Just some examples off the top of my head
My god, I cant believe this. You sir, are a legend! I too love this song, and fantastic to play. I grew up on barenaked ladies (bahahah) and this bassline is indeed, fandango.
Every Breath You Take - Police
Simple bassline, but very powerful. It almost defines the whole song.
Zender's basslines are generally very cool, heck I'd waste a post just on his lol.
Well I guess I gotta write something to earn me my name so I'd say
Hang up your hangups - Herbie Hancock /w Paul Jackson on bass (bet ya didn't see that one coming).
Anyway, I'm just posting for the sake of posting and that song came to mind basically cause I'm listening to it right now.
Other than that one there's just the 500 songs I've got in my iPod plus a whole bunch of others as well.
Add it up - Violent Femmes
best overall bassline ever, period.
There's a lot of technically challenging basslines out there. I can cover just about anything I can hear. I'm not going to cite anything difficult here, since the question was "what's cool?" not "what's a challenge?".
I think it's cool when I can relax, and play, and smile. I'm going with three that just make me smile ear to ear when I cover them. They're not hard, just fun:
Steely Dan - Peg
Stevie Wonder - Signed, Sealed, Delivered
Beatles - Eight Days a Week
