ameentheguitarist23
The guitar/bass chemistry is often one that is overlooked in bands, due to the glamour of vocal/guitar duos (not that those are bad). Let's take a look at the ones we love!

The Top Ten

1 John Frusciante and Flea - Red Hot Chili Peppers
2 Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee - Rush
3 Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones - Led Zeppelin

Jones has always backed Jimmy of his heavy riffs with his bass riffs - zxm

4 George Harrison and Paul McCartney - The Beatles
5 Dave Mustaine and Dave Ellefson - Megadeth

The best working tandem in Megadeth - they've been together since the beginning in the 80s. - Metal_Treasure

6 Ritchie Blackmore and Roger Glover - Deep Purple

They also played together later in Rainbow and this is another proof their collaboration was great. - Metal_Treasure

7 Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt - Green Day
8 Slash and Duff McKagan - Guns N' Roses
9 James Hetfield and Cliff Burton - Metallica
10 Paul Gilbert and Billy Sheehan - Mr. Big

13 Pete Townshend and John Entwistle - The Who
