Anyone know any decent songs with basslines that are subtle but make a big effect on the sound of the band, but not by following the guitar.
I hope you get what I mean..
Ramble on, the opening is quite and really nice.
Yamaha TRB1006
Fender MIA jazz bass
Hora Hybrid double bass
Hartke lh 500
Ev 606L
Epiphone les paul
Some stuff by Tool maybe?

Rosetta Stonned's bassline is quite different from the guitar for quite a bit
The sound of muzak by Porcupine Tree doesn't have any bass in the verse but once the chorus kicks in, the bass really adds to the song, if that's what you mean.
Most anything by Dave Matthews Band. I guarantee you'll see what I'm talking about. The song "Crush" is a good place to start.
Les Claypool
Geddy Lee
Robert DeLeo


...Coincidence? I think not.
I always thought that John Deacon of Queen had some cool subtle basslines. One that comes to mind is from Your My Best Friend.
Thanks, also, I mean stuff like doing what the bass does if you get my meaning - bringing the components of the band ie holding guitar and drums together, but not necessarily is heard.
James Jamerson, Colin Greenwood, Paul McCartney, Sting, Paul Simonon

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

Ibanez ATK300 ◈ Sansamp VT Bass ◈ EHX Nano Small Stone ◈ Hartke LH500 ◈ Ashdown/Celestion 115
Drink the Water by Jack Johnson is a good one.

I think Send Me On My Way by Rusted Root has a really great bass line.
