Hey fellas, I'm looking for some nice relaxing/mellowish type basslines. So what do you folks reccomend.

to mr dave...yes...I know all about that thread. But I don't feel like drudging up each one of those songs to see if the bassline is what Im looking for. So I'm asking the public what they like to play that they think meets the criteria....or simply what they like to play to relax

Exactly...

He's not asking you guys to give him a list of obscure songs he knows nothing about...

He's asking for some basslines....

If you know some basslines that meet his criteria, then post away... If you don't, posting "Waaaa, go to the song thread!"

I'd check out the Jethro Tull version of Bouree... The bass parts are cool/jazzy but still neat-o!


THIS IS THE CRUX OF IT.

if I just want to relax I just improv in a mellow way, other than that listen to some mellow music, tends to have mellow basslines...

and that Mr. Slaptasticdave to you

I tend to just improv my own or maybe play some slower jazz standards.

But for suggestions--as much as I dislike Neil Young, there some nice mellow bass lines in his output. Or play some sad, slow blues licks. Or maybe some Hot Tuna or acoustic Eric Clapton.

try I will Possess Your Heart by Death Cab for Cutie.

or pretty much any roots reggae bassline.

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 agree with humanity, I Will Possess Your Heart is a good one... And all of Death Cab's music tends to be pretty soothing anyway.

Another one you might want to try is The Thrill Is Gone by BB King. Nice slow song.
