Red Hot Chili Peppers Songs With the Best BassGuitarZero It doesn't take a genius to figure out that Flea is one of the best bassists ever. But which songs does he play best on?
The Top Ten
The whole song is a bass solo but it makes an amazing complement to the band as well, hats off to Flea on this one
Dave Navarro's guitar can't even compare with the sounds Flea's bass is making! - GuitarZero
My first contact with the red hot. An amazing bass solo from the beginning to the end!
Of course it's Around The World. But why isn't Knock Me Down in the list?! The bass is the first thing you hear in the chorus!
It fools you at the start. You go "what the hell is Flea doing" and then it gets into the fast part and your like "being Flea, that's what he's doing! " - GuitarZero
