Greatest Bass Solos


The Contenders: Page 4XW

61Billy Sheehan - NV43345William "Billy" Sheehan is an American bassist known for his work with Talas, Steve Vai, David Lee Roth, Mr. Big, Niacin, and The Winery Dogs.

Billy is one of the greats of our time, show in respect to be on the list... but he has so much more in his cache than some, and it's better stuff!

62P-Nut - Nutsymptom
63John Deacon - Liar

This is a list of bass solos, not bass lines. That's why I voted for this song. The solo is short but awesome. The other John Deacon songs on here are more a part of the bass line than they are bass solos.

A nice, short, around 30 second solo in the song Liar. Kind of catchy. You can really hear it live. I really love this, and if you listen, it is near the end of the song. DEACY ROCKS

64Jeremy Davis - Brick by Boring Brick
65Stuart Hamm - Blue Powder
66Joey DeMaio - Black Arrows
67Guti (The Finale) - Bassbaba SumonV1 Comment
68John Moyer - Perfect Insanity
69Roger Waters - Pigs (Three Different Ones)

Another great bass work in the intro this epic song. Maybe the most technical solo played by Waters. What a shame it is so little known!

I'm pretty sure that Gilmour played this solo but still a great part of a great song.
