Always liked stoner/desert rock but never played any. Since forever I've been playing either old school funk and its contemporary variants or dub reggae, for which genres I do have the feel and the technique and I pretty much know what I have to do. But with with stoner rock I can't quite figure out what the basic idea of the bassline is. For example, in funk you focus "on the one", as Bootsy has famously theorized. But with stoner? I have the impression the bassline accents the root of the chord and may play some simple fill or lick every now and then. But I could well be wrong. Is there any "method" to it? Two tracks to illustrate the point. In the first, if I hear correctly, it goes back and forth between Emin and Dmin but can't figure out the logic of the bassline, if there's any. GOAT (my current favorite) are not a stoner band strictly speaking but this track is, more or less. More repetitive and hence structured but still not yet fully understood the bassline in the Fu Manchu track.
