    Lemon Song is a great walking blues tune that you can mine a ton of ideas from!
    I Want You Back (not sure if this is James Jamerson or not) but it's a great bassline regardless-pretty much anything Jamerson or the other Motown Bassists did was great!
    Something has a bunch of great ideas as well. I always thought Paul was overplaying a bit till I played bass on this tune at a gig and tried to play more economically. I ended up not digging it and copping Paul's line about half way through!

    Paul Simonon doesn’t play bass on this track it’s actually Norman Watt-Roy from The Blockheads who wrote and played this bassline.

    I always really liked the bass in Money by Pink Floyd. And pretty much anything by Victor Wooten.

    My favorite bassist of all time, proving that slapping a million miles an hour is not necessary for a stanky funk bassline.
