Duck Dunn and Bruce Thomas
Huge McCartney fan here, but I also love Berry Oakley. RIP Berry!
p bass, flats, svt, fingers
Of course it helps to have monster chops and groove.
Gov'Mule Andy Hess Bass solo
Hansd down,Chris Squier.
Or Les Claypool from Primus's greasy fretless sound. His playing does help things though.
Joe Lally from Fugazi has made me want a Stingray for years. They're a bit pricey though.
Larry Taylor of Canned Heat
RIP Duck Dunn 11-41 5-12
Duck Dunn & James Jamerson do it for me!! absolute legends!!!
Currently: Pino Palladino!!
I like the understated but still brilliant bass work by Sir Paul on this song:
Sometimes a bass could be way up front and be a lyrical counterpoint to the vocals and also use the guitar as background (on non-singing parts) as on this song For the Birds by The Juliana Hatfield Three:
Paul McCartney is the king of tone for me, but I also really like Pino Palladino's sound with his P bass and flats. I also have a soft spot (a sonic fontanelle, if you will) for John Wetton's old Hiwatt grind in King Crimson.
James Jamerson and Pino Palladino to name only two...
jamerson & dunn, mccartney & lee, squier & casady, entwistle & cetera, nathan watts and chuck rainey
What?! No love for lemmie?!
Excellent choices. And there's always this guy, very distinctive and idiosyncratic:
Gets me every time. Jerome (Jerry) Preston.
Prakash John on Lou Reeds Rock & Roll Animal, a beast!
and uhh, Pino Paladino is really amazing.
