    I'm just starting out on the bass, don't know a lot about it, and I want to know if the bass guitar ever plays any lead parts?
     
  2. yes, lead bass not too much main stream however more funk/jazz
     
  3. Listen to "Pulling Teeth" by Metallica. Manowar has a lot of solos too. :bassist: :bassist: :bassist: :bassist: :bassist: :bassist: :bassist:
     
  4. I'd listen to Orion by metallica rather than pulling teeth. As Pulling teeth is a solo, Orion is a full song with mostly lead bass. And a bass solo at 6:35.

    Listen to some funk and jazz. Very few new bands have big bass parts.
