    Default Your favorite Bass lines

    often overlooked, the bass guitar has been played by some talented musicians who have elevated what was supposed to only be the "bottom" of a song, and turned it into a beautiful piece of music in itself.

    This thread is for listing those specific bass lines in songs that really stand out for you.

    I think the greatest bass line ever written/played was Paul McCartney in "Silly Love Songs", from his days w/ Wings.
    The melodic dancing of his fingers and soul are clearly the outcome of this contribution. If you listen to it, it is impossible to sit still and not feel the vibe.

    There are plenty of other equally incredible bass lines throughout music, what is some of your favs??
    Eddie is the greatest, period

    I really dig the bass stuff in Orion by Metallica. Also, Yes's Roundabout has perhaps the greatest bass part of all time, it makes the song in my opinion. Finally, I love the bass line at the start of Peace Sells by Megadeth.

    The outro of "Territories" by Rush. I can think of many more but when I hear the word 'bass', this song comes to mind always.
