I'm trying to find some good classic songs that have bass in them that aren't just normal, too repetitive bass lines. Any suggestions?

Amen to the King Crimson song.

Don't need to look far for a bass line in classic rock : the My Generation bass lead part.

I agree with 21st Century Schizoid Man.. As well as My Generation.

Generally speaking, I find that if you're looking for a more active bass part you're better off avoiding the cliched songs.

What about Roundabout by Yes? Chris Squire is an amazing bassist.

Anything by Yes. Heart Of The Sunrise and Long Distance Runaround/The Fish from their album Fragile are great examples.

The Who.

Yes. John Entwistle wasn't much for the "boring repetitive" bass-lines. Listen to "The Real Me", "My Generation", "Won't Get Fooled Again", etc.

and Magic Bus :P:




The Lemon Song was apparantly all improvised by John Paul Jones, it doesn't repeat itself anyway.
