My Spine Is The Bassline

Mixed June 21-30 2014 by sneJ

I recently bought a bass guitar — an Ibanez SG-300, shown on the cover — and I love it! I've been trying to learn some easy basslines, and I've compiled a big iTunes playlist of songs with great bass parts that I'd like to play. This mix is drawn from that playlist, focusing mostly on the post-punk and post-rock songs. (Some of these are repeats from earlier mixes.)
