Greatest Bass Solos


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Tetsuya Ogawa (l'arc~en~ciel) - Heaven's Drive

the dundundun sound of the bass can be heard and its incredibly very fast - ronluna

42 Roger Glover - Pictures of Home

Reply @dragonspecs91 - bass is awesome but I think that the entire song is awesome, too, not just OK. I heard of this song for the first time in 2015 (shame on me) but I've played it quite often ever since. Besides the bass solo, it has 2 guitar solos, one keyboard solo and a cool drum intro. All these elements are organically connected and don't sound like patches. Besides, the song has a great riff, rhythm, melody and vox. - Metal_Treasure
