Hello bass players and fans of bass playing! Welcome to Groove Wars!
I hope that you can enjoy this and learn a lot about great BASS LINES!
This month, I have two songs that are a charting success, “Jeremy” and “No Excuses.” Both compositions are hit singles in the grunge/alternative rock music era. But notice that “No Excuses,” is more in the acoustic rock style. So, grab your bass and get ready for a Grunge Groove Battle.
Which one is the best?
Artist: Pearl Jam
Composer: Jeff Ament
Bass Player: Jeff Ament
Album: Ten (1991)
