I'm looking for some cool bass riffs to learn, no matter the style of music as long as it's good

So, what bassline do you consider to be the greatest?

These are easy/beginners ones but they are fun to play:

-Walkie Talkie Man - Steriogram
-Muse - Hysteria (or anything by muse, Time is running out, Uno has a nice tango feel to it, etc)
-DFA stuff is quite fun

Hooky is the best melodic bassist ever. His New Order output is the ****ing dogs *******s the way he extracts that rich drone from a bass is really unique.

Funny how the Chilis and RATM are often linked. (I went to Ratm's concert a few weeks ago btw)

Is that all you've got? Pfft.

:p:

Check out Primus (Tommy the Cat?) and Marcus Miller's (Frankenstein?) songs too if you're into that kind of music; brilliant stuff.

Manifest Destiny is incredible Oo I should definitely listen to some more Jamiroquai! Do you have any other good ones?

Btw that's an awesome playlist you've got there on youtube!


Uzeb's Brass Licks ; A jazz rock fusion band from Quebec, underrated imo
