I can't stop playing Dina Lam by Richard Bona (yeah yeah, ha ha). Amazing musician, he has a fantastic voice to compliment his playing too. It's a great song if you wanna improve your chordal/arpeggio/ three finger (thumb, index, middle) playing. Check it out here.

It has a melody that the bass plays during the chorus and the bridge and outro if full of bass fills.

Chameleon by Herbie Hancock. You know the riff.


That and Footprints (the Miles Davis version) are just two of my favourite jazz bass lines. Oh and Mr. PC.

For me right now its:

Bass Player - I believe its Melvin Dunlap, at least on the live version.

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 don't tend to get too obsessed, but at the moment it's a toss up between the bassline from higher ground (RHCP cover) and the bass riff at the end of "I am the ressurection" by the stone roses.
"I hope I die before I get old"-Words of Pete Townsend, 1945-

"I hope I die before I turn into Pete Townsend"-Words of Kurt Cobain, 1967-1994

Funny old world eh.
