Ok, lets get it straight

Beatles = good band
Paul Mccartney - not a good bassist.

He is a goos songwriter, and a good vocalist, but not a good bassist.

And by the way i've mentioned Come Together and i beliveve Anarkee mentioned She's So Heavy


Not a good bassist? what about "i get by with a little help..."?

Do you understand what the word "bassist" means??

and to contribute: no one's mentioned the Jimi Hendrix Experience yet! Wind Cries Mary is a great line for beginners, and Purple Haze and Manic Depression are really repetitive but fun at the same time...

Learn any song by Led Zeppelin. Every Led Zeppelin song has a wicked bassline. Notably The Song Remains The Same. Absolutely amazing bass in that song.

Also I'm surprised noone mentioned IRON MAIDEN. They can be considered classic rock right?

You forgot "Spanish Castle Magic" and "Red House Blues"

^ It's just Red House and was originally played on a detuned guitar. But the live versions are on bass. Ezy Ryder also has a fun bass part. Something by the Beatles has the archetypal melodic bass line. A lot of Zeppelin and Who stuff as well. There's not a song out of their stuff you can go wrong with, unless it doesn't have bass.

Anything by Queen,The Who,Led Zeppelin,Cream,Bad Company and Free(Andy and Bozz are extremely underrated),some Doors,Black Sabbath and Lynyrd Skynyrd(their early bassist is also underrated) and probably Blue Oyster Cult.

Yes I do.

As much as I like the Beatles, Paul wasn't an amazing bassist.
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

Well seeing bass was his second instrument I don't think he was too bad. But most of the Beatles' music didn't call for extravagant bass lines he just played ones that fit the sogns and he definitely has the skills as shown by pieces like I Want You and Something.

I don't really understand why basses have 24 frets, I mean, I've never seen a bassist playing more than the 12 fret.
