There are the fairly obvious bassists, like Victor Wooten, Jaco... but a couple that I've really liked for the fairly simplistic beauty is the old guy from Supertones (was it Tony Terusa? or was that the trombone player?) and Flea, from RHCP

Excellent collection! And, three of my favorite bands, I might add!

Wow.. that's wicked. Uhh.. I use a 5-string bass.. I usually play something behind the lead guitarist too.. what's that behind the guitar? Me! Woo, I am legend.

I'd have to say RHCP.. they always have great lines. Sure Wooten's insane, but I'd prefer a Flea-esque line. Insanity versus beauty.

You surely don't mean the song 'Take Me To Your Leader'? That's a CD maybe? I put it on just for kicks, and it's nothing worth a best bass line prize.. I've never got the Newsboys bass line amazing thing. I mean I admire Phil Joel's bass skills... on second thought.. I don't really.. at all. He has pretty hair though.

Old school talkin' here. For me Cream hands down. Jack Bruce on bass made Clapton the guitar god he is revered as now. Behind every great guitarist there is a better bass player, and Cream was Clapton at the height of his powers because of Jack Bruce's basslines.

no kidding, Newsboys had great bass lines until Adoration. I mean, every song on Take Me To Your Leader, Elle G., Hallelujah, the list goes on...

The difference in my guitar's sound is so wickedly improved that I no longer feel the need to buy a new amp or pedals or even strings...EVER!
So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.
