Be sure to rape the blue note (augmented 4th). Rape it hard and exploit it like the skank it is.

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 first mistake was getting a Chinese lady to cut your hair.

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

Your third mistake was listening to your dicklock parents.

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?

Cream have loads, crossroads is a good place to start.

If you're into more modern stuff, try "Its so Easy" by Guns N Roses, that grooves all the way through.

Compared to most modern pop songs that have solid 8th note root notes, the beatles sound plenty groovy. There obviously are a lot of other stuff which fits the definition of groovy though.

By the sounds of these answers i think everyone's definition of groovy is completely different. Can you be a bit more specific TS?
