    [Music] Groovy bass lines !

    I've been playing the bass for a couple of years now, and i'm realy fond of groovy bass lines (Mostly funk/jazz and disco).

    I wanted to share some of them, so here you go : (Yes a lot of these videos are covers so you guys can see how it's played)

    Groovy metal exists. Not as groovy as the music you shared, but it's still mildly groovy and in general just sounds awesome.

    It's quite cool indeed, funky as hell, double thumbs slaping FTW ! I also forgot to put Jaco on my list, shame on me...


    Edit : I'll just add it here :

    Jaco Pastorius - Come on, come over

    And that too, good ol' funk :

    Maceo Parker - Shake everything you've got

    Trampled Underfoot by Led Zeppelin... Although John Paul Jones did the bass in his Hammond Organ, it's still fucking sick. Also Run Through the Jungle by Creedence Clearwater Revival has a really groovy rhythm section. Love how they mixed blues with the guitar and a borderline-melancholy groove with the rhythm section.
