  8. Make room for me on the "I Want You Back" bandwagon! Nice to see that there are so many of us. It's my favorite bassline, as well as my favorite Motown song.

    That song grooves so hard that it doesn't have any drums during the verses, and you don't even miss them. Impressive! :bassist:

    Why would anyone laugh at that? :confused: I've always thought it was a cool line. I taught it to myself by memory one day - just because I thought it grooved... :cool:

    It seems that the OP was talking about "my" favorite bass line that was recorded by somebody other than me . . .

    I'd have to say Bobby Womack's "Woman's Gotta Have It" (Mike Leech-bassist) . . . GREAT syncopation!

    My favorite bass line (recorded by ME) is a toss-up between Don Ellis Orchestra "Theme from The French Connection" or "A Rock Odyssey" (Dennis Parker-bassist) and Al Wilson "Show and Tell" (Dennis Parker-bassist).
