  1. Anybody know who plays the bass fills and what bass for the funk bass fills during the intros and outros to "Seinfeld"?

    It's a slap sample played on a keyboard. I used to subscribe to Keyboard Magazine, and I remember there was a little sidebar story on it (don't ask me to find the issue, but it wudda been back in '93-'94). If you listen close, on some of the fills the pitch bends kinda give it away too. Still pretty cool though.

    As for what kind of bass was sampled, that's a good question (I'm pretty sure it was a sample and not totally modeled; sampling is waaay easier). What year did that show come out? 1990? What was the slap flavor of the month back then? Hmmmm...
