    Cool Favorite bass tone

    Just beastly vintage low and low mids. With some pick detail on top. Listen with headphones. And don't miss the funk section at 6:30.

    Once I had myself a million, now I've only got a dime.
    Difference don't seem quite as bad today.
    With a nickel or a million I was searchin' all the time
    For something that I never lost or left behind.

    Besides this being an absolute beast of a song to play, the bass is massive here.

    John Wetton was amazing. I loved his P bass through a HiWatt tone.

    This is one of my favorite bass players and bands. P-bass with Rotosounds through some kind of Yamaha amp, apparently.

    I love the way the bass on this song alternates between a phasey delay and completely dry. The contrast makes both sections pop more.

    Yes, John Wetton, who never got enough credit for his absolutely crushing bass tone. That's the way a great P-Bass should sound to me.
