: Anyhow, there was a reason for this post. Like the topic suggests, what i would like you to do is to tell me some of your favorite band and artists. And i mean the bands or artists which you like because the way their bassplayer is playing.
Welcome to the wonderful world of the bass guitar! My favorite bands to listen to are the Doobie Brothers and Fleetwood Mac (ok!!! So I'm over 40!!!). The reason is simple - the relationship between the drummer and the bass player is the cornerstone of any rock band. If you listen to these two classic Rock bands, you will hear the bassist almost totally duplicating the kick drum pattern the drummer is putting out there. There are other great bands, but I got my education from these two bands primarily, and the lessons are still good ones. Listen to the bassist and the drummer - you will hear what I am talking about.
