This is a video of Youtuber Davie504 performing the iconic bass lines of 100 different songs. There were some I felt shouldn't have made the list, and others that were absent that I feel should have been included, but whatever -- everybody has different musical taste. Something that sounds good to one person might sound awful to another. Case in point: babies crying. To me it's the worst sound in the world but people still keep having them anyways.
Keep going for the video, then meet me in my garage after work for a jam sesh.
Thanks to Ricky, who swore to me that he has personal proof that, despite what you may have heard, the bass players in bands do get laid. Just not as often as everybody else. Unless there's a keyboardist.
