i was wondering what are song good songs that are driven by a good, simple bass groove?

i'm one of those guitar players who picked up bass. lately i've been playing guitar a lot, and my basslines seem to always be pretty melodic lately, so i wanna change it up and just learn some simple basslines that sound good.

the kind of thing i'm looking for would be like let there be rock by ac/dc, or vamos by the pixies. those are some songs that come to mind, i just like the groove. it's simple, but it works. so something like that, preferably with a little bass solo like those songs have, but it doesn't have to.

so i'm looking for something like that. anything really, i'm always looking for new music.

try Money by Pink Floyd and Another One Bites The Dust by Queen. then if those are easy, try Time Is Running Out by Muse.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Your second mistake was getting someone who doesn't speak English to cut your hair.

Your third mistake was listening to your dicklock parents.

...and the bassist comes up to the EQ and moves all the sliders into the typical smiley face pattern and in a really thick Jamaican accent said "you can't have de bass without de smiley face"

Starlight by Muse is really easy on bass. If you are just starting on bass it is an easy transition. Alot of root notes kinda stuff, whether that bugs you or not, but the bass is just driving behind it.

Flat wounds. Flat wounds on everything. Everything is a little fatter when it's flatter.
