Basschat Spotify Collaborative Playlist
Posted 21 January 2011 - 05:38 PM
I've been playing bass for a while now, and I've learnt my fair share of fantastic bass lines. However, I know that there are bound to be hundreds of other songs featuring some sweet bass lines that I've never heard of. I know there are quite a few threads here already listing songs to learn, but I thought I'd put out an idea. I'm a big fan of Spotify, and I noticed it had a collaborative playlist function. Therefore, I suggest that we could make a basschat playlist, where anyone could add new songs with good bass lines that others may not have heard of. I know people would have to use spotify to benefit from it, but I think it could be a good idea. I've preliminarily set up one with 3 songs to test the water here: http://open.spotify.com/user/clagooey/play...8vA0sQN2qkts11g
P.S. If this has been suggested before, or if this thread's in the wrong section, then sorry!

I'm hoping that (eventually!) we'll have a list of about 50+ songs added by loads of different people, so that the playlist will be a great tool for people to use if they want to listen to/ learn something different. I guess I just need to be patient and hope that this gets some traction!

I think if you subscribe to it then you can just drag and drop songs onto it? I guess it might just take a few minutes for the adding function to be activated?... I can see you as a subscriber, so hopefully it should work now! If that doesn't work then let me know; I've never done a collaborative playlist before, but I'm pretty sure this is how they're supposed to work (as discussed here: http://www.spotify.c...ures/playlists/ )

I see "I believe in miracles" and "cake hole;" good times! I had to restart it for some reason, but I can see them now. Hopefully this will be the start of something great

Keep 'em coming. I've found a few very cool songs I had never heard about.

Bass guitars with more than 4 strings
Questioner: How come you never play a 5 or 6 stringer Billy?
Billy Sheehan: "I dont need one, I have my hipshot for lower notes, and I can go to harmonics for higher notes"
Questioner: "do you own any"?
Billy Sheehan: " yes I have two or three, though rarely use them outside an ocassional studio set piece"
"I dont like to use them unless I really have to, as when a guy takes a 5 or 6 string bass into the studio, you see the engineers and producers, sighing and shaking their heads" :) (Smiles)
Billy Sheehan: " I have nothing whatseover against 5 or 6 string basses. I just belive that guys dont give themselves a proper chance on the 4 stringer first."
Questioner: How long is 'a proper chance'?
Billy Sheehan: " At least 20 years" (not smiling here, being serious)
Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

I'm glad to see people are using this! I've had a bit of spare time so have added around 60 new songs to the playlist of various genres and difficulty levels. Have fun, and keep adding songs.
