Paul is such a good bass guitar player, it might actually be easier to come up with Basslines that suck!, The list would certainly be much shorter

Don't get me started again mi, we don't wanna take over another thread with your irrational John hate!

Just for the record, Beatle basslines:

All me loving
Rain
Gettin Better
Lovely Rita
Dear Prudence
I've got a feeling (simple but effective)
Hey Bulldog

plus all the great basslines you lovely beatle people have already suggested!

Chill out James, I didn't mean any John hate this time. This name just sounds funny to me, that's all. I would have reacted just the same if it was John McCartney or Paul Harrison or whatever.
Actually we've already had a John McCartney - Paul's grandfather in "A Hard Day's Night", remember?

Enjoy the archives! More on Paul's bass playing to companion the current dialogue

Man, Paul inspired me to take up bass and now I play it with my band (although I'm not left handed lol - though I do have the Beatles moptop!). My favourite bass lines are:

Taxman
I Saw Her Standing There
Paperback Writer
Rain
And Your Bird Can Sing
Old Brown Shoe

He's a total bass god.

Ram on!

I've just been listening to Let It Be...Naked on my iPod as I was walking home, and I've gotta say that Macca is on phenomenal bass form. I'd go as far as saying that, as a whole, it's his best bass performance in The Beatles.

On Don't Let Me Down he is all over it, up and down the fretboard like a madman!

One After 909 is just so inventive, compare it to the 1963 version to see how far he'd come.

I've Got A Feeling - again, peerless.

Worth the admission price for those three tracks alone

I always thought Lady Madonna and Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds were his best Beatle basslines. I don't think he's been fully recognised for being the excellent bassist that he is. He's certainly up there with Brian Wilson and Jack Bruce.
