Bass in songs

Sometimes I have a hard time hearing the bass in music..not so much with U2 songs but in a lot of others. I review different bands occasionally and I feel bad cos sometimes I can't decipher the bass from the rest of the music unless i just completely block everything else in the song out, it's annoying Anyone else have a hard time hearing it? Or maybe it's supposed to blend in that well lol?

That's where EQ can be your friend.

Nice speakers and jacked up bottom end, you'll be able to FEEL the bass guitar in many songs.

It appears that you are not alone. You may want to read through this thread posted in "Even Better Than The Real Thing??" : http://forum.interference.com/t155159.html

Hope that helps some.

It's also better to listen through headphones, if you're listening to music on your computer. I can hardly ever hear the bass in songs if I'm just using my laptop speakers.

I thought this was a thread about naming songs with great bass and I thought you would've mentioned Sheep, One Of These Days, Another Brick and Run Like Hell already!

No. The bass in Zeppelin songs is usually brilliant.

John Paul Jones is a thunder god.

On the topic of gods and Zep, while thrifting today I came across an old, clearly unlicensed Zep shirt with a skelton army on the front, and one giant skeleton holding a giant hammer. It read 'HAMMER OF THE GODS'

goooood stuff

Fav Bass Song:

Bonin' In The Boneyard: Fishbone.

Hell. During the solo someone yells "funky ass bass."
