Biggest Bass Drop... EVER!!! #Edit:It's come to my attention that the term “Bass Drop" is not universal so may I add that this thread is asking for members to share their favourite Outstanding Bass moments in songs & has nothing to do with dropping fish*

Recommended Posts

@Ted!  The term 'bass drop' is universal!  :)
And the real answer to the real question is Ripgroove by Double 99.
So let's pack up our bass guitars and go home, because the synth wins...

One of the comments sums it up perfectly -
'2:01 Now that's a drop, the drop of all drops, a real d.r.o.p. Every other so-called drop is just aettention-seeking and meaningless, this is THE DROP."

Cheers!

A. Nother. Ted

You can have synth fun with a bass. Every now and then I have a listen to this to remind myself that a bit of commitment to your instrument never hurts. 

Damn youngsters with their commitment. 😁

I don’t know why this gets me right in the guts in a way that’s exactly right and it was the first thing that popped into my head when I heard the phrase ‘bass drop’. Around 2:55 when the guitar and vocals drop out ...

One of the many PiL/Jah Wobble reasons I love bass. About 1:36 where the entire mix turns bass heavy ...

The opening of this track is bass heaven, it’s like getting into an audio bath ...

If you have to explain yourself you have already lost your audience.

Nathan Navarro is good 👍 recently to be seen on Devin Townsend's latest album and tour 🙂

And here's an old one also with the Hot Hand.

Looks skilled, but no, I can't listen to this.

As far as I was aware it's a term normally reserved for electronic/dance music, particularly dubstep. Commonly the bass, and possibly drums, is held back for a verse or a section and then comes back in with a blast. 

But if we're just going for tracks were the bass injects energy into the track then I'll put the live version of Sabotage in. The song does stop and come back in with bass so it's kind of there. 🙂

 

Well, its probably too mainstream and boring, but, Flea immediately injects energy into Aeroplane with his bassline and, my goodness, the full bass solo is funky, full of character and perfectly formed. It's like listening to his best advice on how to be a RHCP.

Funky, underrated, damn tight and, I think one of their best musically.

Not at all boring, dear Mr Toad, not in the slightest... but it's kind of “a given" that Flea is gonna inject something...

Where & what, who knows?...

 

Seriously though, any track that this particular Siphonaptera is a part of WILL very often be pretty darn A-Awesome!!

 

 

 

Oh my!!!....

 

BIG BASS DROP!!!! 1:40 (if you can't wait)

Such a despicable band... Hate to love ‘em!!

The bass intro which starts at just after 5:00 in this version often featured the biggest Phil Bombs, especially during the Wall Of Sound era. Always loved playing this myself in various hippie bands I played in over the 70s and 80s.

Never heard the term 'bass drop' before, but kind of get the idea now someone's used something I recognise as an example.

The band I'm in is 100% Grateful Dead, and the Other One is always popular with us and our audiences.

This is my favourite PiL era Jah Wobble tracks, the bass on this has a simple but massive groove. 

 

And here's a Covid-19 Buy One Get One Free offer, The rhythm guitar on this is actually a distorted 6 string bass according to Peter Hook's Unknown Pleasures book;

Cool. I attended one of the shows that made it onto that album; I believe the Not Fade/Going Down The Road/Not Fade medley is from the show I saw in New York, my first one actually. This is pre-Wall Of Sound, but I saw that in action a number of times as well.

The NFA/GDTRFB/NFA medley is one of my favs, there's some great opportunities for the bass in there! Would have loved to have seen/heard Bear's Wall of Sound in action!!

This has to be one of my fave tracks with a bass drop, it comes in at 38 secs.  Have a decent pair of speakers or cans.

14:09, when it steps up a gear and the bass pedals kick in... Oh my word. Gives me shivers and goosebumps, every time.

      So how long have you been playing bass, and why did you start?
      I think I started playing bass around when I was 16 or so, a couple of years after I had started to learn how to play guitar, which makes the time I have played bass around 27 years by now, most of that time having had bass as my main instrument of choice, although having continued to play guitar on the sideline all along.
      It all started one day at band rehearsal where I by pure incident picked up the bass players bass and started playing, fell in love with the sound and feel of playing it, right there on the spot, and soon after answered an add by a drummer and a guitarist/vocalist seeking a bass play for their band.
      After an audition session I got accepted as their new bass player, and even got a lot of praise from the drummer, who was a skilled musician that knew how to sight read music, and both played piano and guitar on the sideline, beside drums, (the same two people, though in another band, that I much later since recorded a 2 track Single and a 4 track EP with, which were released on a small independent record label some of our friends own, before I left that band, much top my later regret, though I did get to contribute to some of the compositions of their later full length album, even if not recording anything for it).
      The first few months with that original band I didn't even own my own bass yet, but had to borrow one.
      Soon after I decided to put my focus on playing bass over playing guitar.
      For some reason playing bass just came more natural to me, the instrument just felt right in my hands, and turned out I must have been thinking more like a bass player than a guitarist all along.

      Hello I was looking for the BASS tabs for Fleetwood Mac's Rhiannon song.  i have found two that were not correct and although I'm trying to pick up by ear and watching several videos I am still struggling.  As a new bass player I am just trying to make sure I am right.  Thanks for info you can send in advance!!

      Has anyone had problems with the controls on a WAL Pro bass. I didn't appreciate just how unique the knobs were until I tried to get a repair done. There are stalks that connect from the knob to the pot and these have sheared off on a couple of controls. The technician managed to repair these by glueing new ends on so that I could at least play the instrument. I can use all but one control were the glued on part came off. I don't know if WAL still supplies spare parts for these. I sent an email but no response. They might just be busy or in lockdown so I will wait and see. I guess I could probably get someone to custom make the stalks. Anyone else had this problem?
