    M42, or Sunny So. Cal.
    Matt Freeman's playing in Rancid really elevates the songs.

    Doug Rauch on Santana's Song of the Wind. Great early example of double thumbing while giving Carlos plenty of space to just solo.


    Jaco playing The Chicken. Best bassline from the best ever.

    Once somebody whips out the Jaco it's usually all over.
    Neat that you contrasted Rauch. I always loved his line in Gaujira and as a guitarist, pissed off a couple of bass players by aping the line on my six string between my parts.
