My Favorite Bass Songs

Here are some favorites from my personal collection of bass songs. Some of these songs are old and some are new, but I personally recommend listening to as many different styles of music as possible.

Hopefully this will also give you a sense of the history of the bass guitar in recorded music too. Many music teachers stress the importance of listening to, and learning from, the music of the past. In my opinion, I think that this is a great way to prepare for a future career as a musician and/or to add more depth and passion to your lifelong hobby of playing and listening to music.
