    Nacho shared this vid on FB. It made me wonder what you guys think the best ever bass intros or lines are, that really defines the song they're in (don't have to stick to rock this time!).

    Fire away please!

    For me personally, Heart of the Sunrise by Yes is the one track (and in particular the way it kicks in with that bass line) that made me decide I wanted to play a bass guitar.
    Chris Squire's parts and playing are simply compelling musically, not so much technically maybe but DANG. Saying it all with melodic and harmonically sound stuff is a-ma-zing imho.

    It is very tough for me to say one, so I'd say two of my favorites (out tof the Beato's list):

    Gn'R's - It's So Easy
    So simple yet right into the guts that's pure rockNroll


    Alice In Chains - Rotten Apple

    I watched the Beato video recently. I was glad he included "Peace Sells". But I think "Seven Nation Army" also deserves inclusion. Good calls overall.

    Funny, now that you bring up Marcus. Awesome players like him, Wooten, Clarke, etc. while genius in their playing never seem to gell with how my brain likes music. Sure I try to play some of their stuff sometimes for the challenge of it but I never listen to any of their songs.

    Am I an odd one here?

    Give me Wolstenholme, Squire, Pinnick, Timmy C, JPJ etc. anytime but the typical 'bass heroes' are not reaching me on a musical level as much.

    All great ones guys. SO many to choose from.

    I can understand not loving some of the bass virtuosos, but I think Marcus writes some great stuff. This song has a crazy intro, but the groove and the rest of the tune are really fun to me.

    It is a cool bass line for sure, but Seven Nation Army was not a bass.
