Greatest Bass Solos


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Flea - By the Way
62 Stanley Sheldon - Marching Powder
63 Greg Lake - 21st Century Schizoid Man
64 Flea - Stone Cold Bush

This song was the reason I wanted to pick up the Bass. Listen to the Live version for an extended solo which will make you rewind over and over again!
Long Live FLEA!

65 Seela - An Aphrodisiac

very loud and clear bass see the live 2007 tour - ronluna

66 John 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

67 Jeremy Davis - Brick by Boring Brick
68 Joey DeMaio - Black Arrows
69 Jason Newsted - My Friend of Misery Jason Newsted - My Friend of Misery Jason Curtis Newsted is an American metal musician, known for being the third bass guitarist with the band Metallica from November 1986 until his departure in January 2001, he was also a part of Voivod and Flotsam and Jetsam.
70 Geddy Lee - La Villa Strangiato
71 John Moyer - Perfect Insanity
72 Roger 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.
