Thanks Josh,
At that time I didn’t know how to play bass that well. I just sang to it and a sound engineer did the rest.

Not sure if anyone else has mentioned it but Salsoul orchestra has some great basslines in their songs.

Here’s a breakup song about Christmas and Seasonal Affective Disorder. What more could you ask for? The band was one of my favorites in DC in the early to mid 90s. They also had seven bass players in their five-plus years of existence (the bassist equivalent of Spinal Tap’s drummers, although none of theirs spontaneously combusted), so I’m holding out hope that my B2B training will make me number eight if they ever get back together.

I found this album Soul Christmas the other day, one of the few Christmas albums I can make it all the way through without wanting to skip any tracks. And it has some excellent bass :slight_smile:
