I'm not a musician so I'm interested in what the musicians on the board think, as well as the non musicians

 

My pick:  Queen, Another One Bites the Dust

Not a musician, but a big bass jam that jumps out at me is Money, Pink Floyd. Not saying its the best, but just grabs me.

I would say for classic rock

 

John paul Jones Dazed and Confused or Rodger Waters on Money come to mind immediately.

 

How about for a chick bassist Psyco Killer by talking Heads (Tina Weymouth)

Phil Lesh on Dancin in the Streets Cornell 77 might be one of the slickest basslines out there.

Can i recommend if you post a video, that we caption it with the song title? A lot of these videos fail to work or appear...

One of my favorite Vibes moments ever was in Bridgeport with Les Claypool - he did a between song bass narrative on Another One Bites The Dust vs. The Sugar Hill Gangs Rappers Delight  (the same year he talked about how he loved hippie shows, cause when he rambles like this at Primus the crowd chucks shoes at him :lol: )

 

Great times :)

Ueah that sounds sick. Those two basslines are pretty similar...

The rappers delight bassline is taken from Chic's Good Times, to be more accurate

How about Rio by Duran Duran. Killer bassline.

Anyone ever listen to "Level 42"? Bassist Mark King is simply astounding!
