Nooooo..... He`s the most original guitarist ever. Jimi Also makes a chance. But every guitarist can solo in a scale or something. But can they imitate a monkey or a helicopter on a guitar? Though it`s maybe not your style you have to admit it`s wicked. But... I most say that his riff`s are not the most original, it`s simple but rocking your socks off.

The Jamiroquai basslines were under my radar until about 6 months ago when someone pointed out just how fantastic they were. And this song is exceptionally good.

Jaco is da bomb.

any Cream or Muse song, really. except Blue Condition. that song is annoying in all ways. Darkshines and Sitting on Top of the World are particularly fascinating at the moment.

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.

Right now at this moment.

Red Baron - Billy Cobham
If you want me to Stay - Sly and the Family Stone
Golden Boy - Primus
Perfect Day - Lou Reed
Thela Hun GinJeet - King Crimson
The Awakening - The Reddings


and I am teaching my son how to play "Hendershot" (Les Claypool and the Holy Mackerel), not hard but stupidly fun and though easy and straightforward, I have to say I've been a right Radiohead mood lately as well.

Oooo, decisions, decisions.
At the moment, I'm very into most rage basslines, although that's not my normal stance. Also been into lots of Who (who's next, live at leeds) and on a more contemporary note the subways, who actually have better basslines than you might expect.

Back in the 70's I decided to take all the frets off Jaco's Bass thinking he would play worse. Man did that backfire.

There is no bass in Seven Nation Army. In fact, The White Stripes are a two-piece band composed of the guitarist (Jack White) and drummer (Meg White) so there is no bass in any of their songs (unless it was added by a studio bassist).

The main riff of Seven Nation Army was recorded on an acoustic bass by Jack White. So, there is bass on the track.

My fave riffs at the moment are the man riff in "Death Certificate" by Carcass or the bridge section of "Damage Inc." (the half time bit, 'da-da da daah' under the guitar part).
