Default Your favourite basslines?

I'm looking for some more basslines to listen to and possibly try out. But don't keep back any complex ones on my account.

One of mine would definitely be abbe may with this song:

Just to expand on this thought I love the kind of funky meanderings in the bass line of this Marvin Gaye song. Here's some dude on YouTube giving it a fair crack.

Here's four songs with really great basslines. No idea how easy or hard they would be to learn to play, but they're some of my favorites.


Money - Pink Floyd + Lyrics - YouTube


Nirvana - Come As You Are - YouTube


The Stone Roses - I Wanna Be Adored - YouTube


Cream - Sunshine of your Love - YouTube

Peter Hook has a long line of good Bass leads.









Yeah, some may call it a "Taxman" rip, but it still is a great line!

Hard to beat this particular monster as far as basslines go.

^ Some really great ones, I especially love those songs by Ride, The Jam, and The Clash. Ride has a lot of other really good ones I know of too.

What do you guys think of this one? I think the bass intro is what really makes the song. Anyways, the bass is pretty catchy.

The best bassline that doesn't even really sound like a bassline:

Overwhelming response! The clash ones really surprised me I'd never really given them that much thought before.

Bass kicks in properly about halfway in this one.
