Great Basslines

Recommended Posts

ABBA songs have amazing basslines. One of Us is probably the most obvious to hear. Most were played by a guy called Rutgar Gunnarsson. Masses of thought into how they work with the song. Amazing.

The Oakenfold mix of Massive Attack's Unfinished Sympathy is very cool. It's the most common version with a bassline.

McCartney on Penny Lane.

Rio is bordering on funk bass... I wish I was good enough to play it..

Definitely one of my favourites, I don't care if Duran Duran aren't cool, they were tight!

Taylor was influenced by Bernard Edwards of Chic, he of the iconic Good Times line, but found his own style.

And for the white boys John Entwistles bass line from My Generation takes a lot of beating

The song has become a cliche but the bass is still ace

Often Entwistle carries both the rhythm and the melody on Who songs

Don't tell Pete Townshend but the Who are just not the same without Entwistle and Moon

What a good thread :)

Nomination for the sexiest bass ever from Stanley Clarke - I wanna play for you, from the 1988 album If The Bass Could Only Talk. Old school deep funky bass at it's best.

So many good ones..

Can't stop Chilli peppers

Another one bites the dust Queen

Level 42 Mark King

Money Pink Floyd

The Beatles Come Together

Malignant Narcissism Rush

Just based upon the thread title and without opening it, the first bassline that came to my mind was the one in Rio.

I imagine most people wouldn't credit Duran Duran with any incredible musicianship. The Rio bassline is so much more than I think anyone would expect from dim recollections of a fairly lightweight pop song from the '80s, that I think it's worth emphasising:
