Songs with propulsive chromatic bass runs!

Recommended Posts

John Paul Jones on this Dusty Springfield song, I love that propulsive rising chromatic run thing in the intro (also later on) and the busy Motown-esque bassline. 

Got any favourites that do this kind of thing? I like the way it pushes the song along. :)

Is it just me - where's the chromatic run in this?

This is full of chromatic bass runs! And lots of other stuff... Though I didn't realise he'd changed his name again to Jamaad-Len!

Thanks for posting! I'd forgotten about him and badly need to revisit.
Sorry to see the fans never forgave Len for doing the Cottage Delights Jam ad in the seventies. 😉

I'm not going to post it, but he's also recently done gigs with The Wiggles in Oz, one song being "Play The Bass Guitar (Jamaaladeen you're a star)"

These boots are made for walkin....

 

Heard that song, or parts of it today as the background noise level was high, and I noticed the decending bass line. Impressive. And it works.
