    Hey guys, I can't for the life of me find enough songs that play slow sexy bass-lines in the higher range. Could you be as so kind to recommend artists/material where the bassist really makes the chords cry. Chur :bag:

    I'm not sure if this is the type of thing you're looking for but check out the bass solo on "I'll Take You There" by the Staple Singers: Bass solo starts at 1:54.

    Cool :) But do you know of anything that is more potent?

    The Widow by The Mars Volta comes to mind immediately and Boston has some sweet basslines that 'make the chord cry' albeit they aren't too slow
