Bass Guitar Riffs That Shaped Popular Music [VIDEO]

I play the bass guitar, and next to the drummer, we always get the short end of the stick. Well this guy shows 100 songs off that would have never been the same without four strings and a little funk.

I wish I knew how to play all 100 of these famous bass licks. The video is a bit lengthy, but even in the first few minutes it amazes you how much you recognize of a song just from the bass line. I heard a lot of Red Hot Chili Pepper stuff in this and Flea was always one of my inspirations as a bass player.

I also looked up to guys that played Bass, and took it one step further and fronted the band. Beatles had Paul McCartney and the Police had Sting, all front men that played bass. Kip Winger did as well, but we won’t mention that.
