    I think fleas amazing but certainly not what makes that band great.

    I fail to really appreciate bass.

    You need it but you don't really appreciate it or ever see it as the soul focus of a song.

    For me, it will just always be something in the background.

    I have "the lol fear"

    Worried I'm going to be out on the piss tonight. Wake up hungover and this post has 20+ "you idiot" lols
    Ask any guitarist, pianist or drummer worth their salt and they’ll tell you they’re lost without their bassist. It drives the music, a song without a baseline is like a Ferrari without an engine ;-)

  • I know of a Charlton Life member that to be fair to him, he is a really good bass player. I was impressed.

    My opinion regarding this might not be so valid, as I am not a bass player myself.

    Yep, sorry Dave. If you want music to dance to, your bassline is what gives you your groove. There are loads of songs that I enjoy listening to because they have clever lyrics or great melodies, but I find that it's the ones with good basslines (even if they aren't that high up in the mix) that will get me bouncing round in my seat.

    I used to watch drum covers on YouTube and famous session drummers playing in studios, along to the famous tracks they originally played on, so I often get suggestions come up for other types of covers. This one came up a while back and I found it again this morning. Girls got talent and, what a bass line, Luther Vandross, Never Too Much


  • Oh dear, I must be really old. Never heard of most of them.
    Let's see how old you are, do you remember Billy Bonds, @rememberbillybonds ?

    Fair doos.

    I just enjoy flirting around with a bit of bass on my standard 6 string guitar.

    I think your 100% right about what you say here....it's just something that I have a lack of appreciation for.

    Which is not really the right attitude....but, it's where I'm at.

  • My own bass line on this!

    Not really. It’s actually this by Cory Wong, which Salad will like if he’s into Dean Town. (Although it isn’t Joe Dart... the beast of a bassist is playing the bass STRUNG UPSIDE DOWN... shouldn’t even be legal.)

    Ridiculous.
