    My Tribute band asked me to work up a solo...I am considering a medley of popular basslines from the 1980's / classic rock as that is what we play as a band....I know it's all been done before but I want to keep it entertaining for the audience by playing some licks people will recognize. Any suggestions? I've been so excited about this but I am having a hard time getting started...I run out of ideas after Rush and zeppelin :meh: If you don't mind, toss a suggestion of some cool hooks, lines, whatever my way so I can start putting something together....I would like to stay within the theme of the band so I would like to avoid riffs from current artists.

    Trying to post the links. they didn't work. Anyway, there are some cool bass files in Guitar Pro format at www.mysongbook.com -- one that's 50's, one for 60s, one for the 70s, one for the 80s-90s. You might get some ideas. Hopefully you have Guitar Pro ?
