In a continuing look at music that has helped shape our modern world, it seems to me that breaking this down into relevant works might be a good way of getting a good feel for this. My youtube.com channel has been primarily created as a resource for my daughters and some friends. It is found here:
One of the playlists found on this is The Bass Line. This is an introductory list of some of the top rock and rock jazz basslines being performed. You can access it here:
At a later date, I intend to revisit this with an additional list. For now, I will just invite those interested to take a listen and experience some of the best bass playing there is. Music is the universal language and is one that I hope touches each heart and soul nearly as much as it has mine. (As an aside, Tiggy T’s knowledge of music from a listener’s perspective leaves me feeling dwarfed at times, so I hope very much to see her contribute on this subject.)
For now live, love and enjoy – musically and otherwise!
