Well they're metal but Black Sabbath has plenty of songs that aren't very hard and have audible bass, so does Van Halen
So that with good courage we say, “The Lord is my helper. I will not fear. What can man do to me?”

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

He's big fans of Sabbath and Zep. I'll take a look into the two. Thanks.

Eh, I'm not too big on the Beatles.

Pink Floyd. Money is a fun one.

This, can't believe I didn't think of it before. And although it's not too audible, Immigrant Song has an awesome bassline.

why has Yes not been mentioned?

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.

I was going to say Paperback Writer or Rain, but they're not exactly beginner songs, though the bass is absolutely audible on them.

Because we're talking about classic rock with easy to intermediate basslines. Not prog rock insanity.

guitar solo - "meh, every song got one"
bass solo - "OMGZ0R U IS PRO MENZ"

Agreed--and I wouldn't call "Lemon Song" easy either for a beginner.

Cream is going to be one of your best bets. Bruce's lines are interesting but easy for a beginner to tackle (with the exception of Crossroads).

Hendrix is another good place to mine. Manic Depression, Purple Haze even Spanish Castle Magic is not beyond the abilities of most beginning bass players.

Hey Joe is easy to play as well... genuis bassline and I haven't ever really been able to figure out what scale/mode Redding is using, but it's so easy to play
#17
Hendrix, the Who, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, other stuff.

Yeah, I kind of just summarized everything.
#18
I remember for Sgt. Peppers, the bass is actually 2db louder.

Jimi's "Fire" is a good tune. Van Halen is super (although the guitar parts are hard). ZZTop "Lowrider". Queen "crazy little thing called love" is lots of fun
#20
For the 80's you can search Fisher Z's Marliese... that cool.

For the 70's Thin Lizzy's Dancing in the Moonlight and Yes' Long Distance Runaround....

60's - Cream, Zep (dazed and confused of course...)

Just ones I play as a workout

The Who

For some tunes, but Entwhistle could be a bit difficult in some places, depending on OP's definition of beginner/intermediate.
The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.


For me, the 60's ended that day in 1978...

Willies. Fuck the lick and fuck you too.
