This song is so hauntingly lovely. I've listened to it so much lately.

The slightly grating, occasionally off-key vocal work also makes it perfect in my eyes.

I am listening to famous bass intros and famous rock bassists.

I was looking at my J Bass today and realized I had forgotten why I purchased a Jazz Bass instead of a Precision Bass. After reading again about basses, I saw my reason: the J Bass has a slenderer neck and allows for a wider variety of tone variations since it has two single-coil pickups with individual tone controls, rather than just the single P Bass pickup unique to P Basses.

Then I realized that I'd never really listened to bass lines of songs very much, and I thought I should, because I like strong bass lines in music. So I decided to do a little crash auditory course in bass playing:





^ I liked Jason Newsted's bass sound in Metallica the best.

Next, I listened to Geddy Lee's bass line track from the studio recording of Rush's "Tom Sawyer" so I could better hear what is going on in the song:



I thought that was such fun, that I listened to Geddy Lee's isolated vocals for "Tom Sawyer":



I finished up with Neil Peart's isolated drums from the same song so I could hear the sound quality and panning used in the recording:



^ I like musical surgery that lets me tease apart the sinews and inspect each one carefully.

The Pretenders - "Pack It Up" and "Tattooed Love Boys"
I listened because this website (Playlist: Remembering James Honeyman-Scott of the Pretenders « Guitar Aficionado) recommended James Honeymoon-Scott's guitar-playing in these songs:




The Pretenders Tattooed Love Boys - YouTube

Then I watched "Precious" by The Pretenders to pay attention to the sound of Chrissie Hynde's Telecaster but found myself especially noticing the punk-like, repetitive bass line in this song:



And then this song, "Day after Day," which I like better due to the different guitar sounds, the delicious, jangly Telecaster at the start, and then I'm not sure which ones:



Hey! I just read that "Hynde is a vegetarian and animal rights activist. She is a supporter of PETA and the animal rights group Viva!" Cool!
