Simply put, Paul McCartney is the greatest pop bass player ever.
THINGS THAT MAKE PAUL MCCARTNEY SO RAD:
- Hofner bass
- He plays left handed
- His amazing sense of melody
- That PLUNKA PLUNKA PLUNKA sound he manages to capture. Every bass should sound like this.
- Have you ever listened to his bass lines from Revolver up to Abbey Road?
I find myself constantly playing air bass guitar to his lines. When I play real bass guitar, I think “How Would Paul McCartney play this?” (HWPMPT wrist bracelets coming soon!). Heck, I even went out and plunked down all that money on Beatles Rock Band just to get the Hofner Bass guitar replica. I also only play bass on that game. Of course.
