This is a thread dedicated to all the bass lines you think don't really fit the song, or the bass lines you think you would've played better. I can think of two right now: Money for Nothing, Dire Straits. Ugh. I'm not really a fan of bass lines with quarter notes on the 1 and the 3, unless you're dealing with pretty fast songs. I guess an additional note here and there would've added to the groove. I also hated the note choice in the fills, because they really don't fit to the main guitar riff. Played alone, the bass line on "Money..." really sounds like condensed crap, and poor me had to play this for years. Love Will Tear us Apart, Joy Division Perhaps I simply dislike Mr. Hook's style of playing, but to me, music starts to sound "funny" and pretty much off-key when everyone's playing the same notes and there's no harmonic basis. No offence, Mr. Hook, but sometimes a bunch of root notes really don't do any harm. Now name some bass lines you really can't stand. Durr, edited because I mistook Joy Division for New Order, I guess that shows how much I like them.
