Stanley Clarke – School Days
Pretty sure nobody’s mentioned the late, great Jaco Pastorius.Posted 1 year ago
short intro…..Posted 1 year ago
Intro ish but Two bass players for the price of one band.Posted 1 year ago
Cop Shoot Cop 🙂
I’m not 100% sure this qualifies (starts with guitar before the bass kicks in and the intro is short) but it’s what popped into my head:Posted 1 year ago
Pretty sure nobody’s mentioned the late, great Jaco Pastorius.
blimey – never realised that was bass!Posted 1 year ago
Not crawling through 6 pages, but if no-one’s mentioned Rancid yet, shame on you all (and if theyhave, good call).Posted 1 year ago
Disappointing lack of Tame Impala’s The less I know the better, someone clever get with the linky linky 😉Posted 1 year ago
This whole album is full of amazing bass lines but this is the track where it kicks in first
So heavy without just being metal, savage raspy tone and never losing the swaggering groove. It’s my favourite RATM album.Posted 1 year ago
The RavenPosted 1 year ago
How could I have forgotten about this classic?! The beautiful Peven Everett, GabrielPosted 1 year ago
How did I miss this thread…
Anyone done Debaser yet?Posted 1 year ago
Pretty sure nobody’s posted this yet, possibly one of my favourite Floyd pieces.
And Chris Squire, an astonishing bass player, I always find myself listening to his bass playing in particular whenever I play any Yes stuff.Posted 1 year agoPosted 12 months agoPosted 12 months ago
Since this is a year old thread let’s hit this jam in the old school wayPosted 12 months ago
How it started…
Same riff on bass and guitar. Counts.
Must’ve been posted before, possibly by me as part of the tiny desk set. Superb bass into, virtuoso middle break and jaw dropper outro all put in the shade of that groove…Posted 12 months ago
No idea if its already been mentioned but Frankie Vallie’s The Night has a glorious bassline.Posted 12 months ago
A slightly sidewise entry, but up there with my favourite intro’s of all time.Posted 12 months ago
pretty basic but an iconic bass intro….Posted 11 months ago
How about some Harry Nilson
Technically I guess the drums are first and it’s very short but its a great little riff and its nice a present in the mix right through the song.
And also has someone said NIB. Might even have been me!Posted 11 months ago
Technically not an outstanding bass intro I’m guessing that former session bassist Scott Walker is the one riffing away.Posted 11 months ago
I’m pretty sure the intro was recorded with a regular 6 string guitar and the ‘dusty end’ of a bass guitar (both heavily distorted).Posted 11 months ago
I have a feeling Ive already shared Gratitude but if not it doesn’t do harm to share againPosted 11 months ago

Psycho KillerPosted 9 months ago
Don’t think this has been added yet:Posted 9 months ago
Damn, how could I have forgotten Psycho Killer! I saw them on that tour, as well, supported by Dire Straits. Chris Franz and Tina Weymouth are one of the great rhythm sections.Posted 9 months ago
I don’t think this has been posted yet, it popped up on shuffle this morning prompting a certain amount of head banging while trying to do despatch checks on cars. I remember watching the video on a late-night MTV programme and it just blew me away.Posted 9 months ago
Incredible band and amazing musicians.Posted 9 months ago
None more bass:Posted 9 months ago
