    So wats up TB it's been awhile since I've been active here (not that anyone knows me :p) and lately I've been trying to nail down the whole Appetite for Destruction album by Guns N Roses on the bass! The experience is fun and once I came across Rocket Queen it became my fav. bassline! I dig My Michelle and Mr. Brownstone too, so what are your all time favorites? I'm hoping to discover gems along the way...
     
  2. i'm not sure this the right place for this, BUT, ok....

    i think the king of basslines would be the Who's, The Real Me, by that impeccable player, John Entwistle. although Love is the Drug by Roxy Music is mighty good.

    I prefer light tackle with 6-8 lb. test but when fishing for trophy bass in heavy cover I usually bump it up to 10-12 lb. test. The new flourocarbon lines are really good. ;)
     
  4. The intro to "I Walk The Line" is really fun to play (to me). Then it goes into the granny style 1-2 rythm and I get bored, so I play the intro again. :D

    I'm terrible with favourites. But the first one that comes to mind would be on "This Charming Man" by The Smiths.

    I do like playing both of those and I use Rime as a warm up song alot. My favorites are pretty much most Rush songs :bassist:

    I have bee really stuck on the bass part from " Tell Me Something Good". The whole thing because the verse and chorus both have something interesting going on.

    "diamonds on the souls of her shoes" is amazing (actually that whole album the bass work is fantastic)
    and anything Juan Nelson does; "steal my kisses", "Excuse me Mr."..
    Funk ooozes from that mans fingers. Sooo much flavour.
