I just thought it would be a good idea to have a thread were people contribute by recommending some CD's that you recommend, as bassist, we should listen to and maybe some performace DVD's or videos of bassists or bands that you think, as bassists, we should watch. And also saying why it's a good listen/watch I'll start by contributing a few: CD's: The Beatles # 1 - 27 of their Number 1 hits and Paul McCartney is showing of some of his best and famous bass lines in songs like Lady Madonna, Come Together and The Ballad of John and Yoko. I great listen for anyone, especially musicians and espeically bassists. Red Hot Chili Peppers - One Hot Minute - with songs like Aeroplane, Coffee Shop and the infamous Pea, it's a great listen DVD's: RHCP Live at Slane Castle - Very slick presentation and Flea showing us why he's one of the best bassist on the mainstream circle and why the Red Hot Chili Peppers have been around so long. I whole heartedly recommend those 3. How about you?
