Fugazi

—Turnover

Joe Lally’s incredibly unique and often reggae tinged basslines are some of my favorite.

James Taylor

—Your Smiling Face

Leland Skar’s tone is aggressive and his playing really jumps out of the mix in this song.

Anti-Flag

—Sodom, Gomorrah, Washington D.C. (Sheep in Shepherds Clothing)

Chris #2’s bass playing is often busy and highly melodic typically building to a climax at the end of a song.

Testament

—Souls of Black

Greg Christian’s typically deft playing will be missed now that he has left Testament.

Graham Central Station

—Hair

Larry Graham’s Thumpin’ and Pluckin’ changed the electric bass forever.
