If it was one of those threads, I would have. I've been in love with the bass in San Tropez lately.

I never could get into A Pillow Of Winds. There are plenty of PF songs with similar feels to APOW that I far prefer.

PS, AngelofHarlem01, if you're still having trouble hearing the bass in songs, please go and buy Blood Sugar Sex Magik by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

or any RHCP album, really!

Californication


I knew you wouldn't like APOW... cos it's Gilmour! Correct?

Incorrect. I think Mr Gilmour wrote some crap songs, but he did write the scattered brilliant one here and there. As for APOW, it just doesn't move me. Not even Waters' involvement with the lyrics could save it. Childhood's End, on the other hand, moves me very much. I hate Gilmour's lovey-dovey songs.


Back on topic, Californication has some great bass in it. The solo in Otherside.

"Suck My Kiss" is pretty much led by the bass guitar.

And how awesome it is. The bass is also very prominent in The Righteous & The Wicked. Probably one of my favourite Flea bass lines. Sir Psycho Sexy's very funky as well.

Sorry to go off topic again, but MrBrau, I just have to comment on What Little I Know again. I've been listening to it so much lately. Great song, man.

Thanks Gibby. I appreciate that.

It's the best song I've ever written.

It's on my to-do list as a re-record, singing it myself.

My pleasure, the song's well worth the praise. Thanks for sharing it with us! It'd be great to hear a re-recorded version.

This thread has got me listening to the Chili Peppers again. It has been a long time. I still can't get over how tight BSSM is, musically. Everything fits into the right place on that album. And, of course, it confirms that Flea really is one of the greatest bassists of all time.

Sir Psycho Sexy is hilarious. He's a freak of nature, but we love him so...

Check out "A Town Called Malice" by The Jam.

There's a bass lead for ya. It drives the whole tune.

White English guys playing 60's R&B.

And playing it well.

one of my favorite bass players

It's relatively simple, but the bass line and pretty much everything about Ny Batteri by Sigur Ros is droolworthy.

Especially live

i thought on bass

i love it..its why i became one(a bass player)...its also cause i love low sounds even though i don't have a low voice. if there was no bass there would be no soul, no flow in a song and no funk!!Music would be nothing with out bass....bass a guitar with 4 strings but man can you rock out on one!!!!
