    harassed Mega Man all through Mega Man 8 apparently obsessed with proving himself to Dr Wily He needn t bother as this is the guy who build Junk Man and Dust Man we re talking about Of late Dr Wily has been looking to replace Bass having built such robots as King destroyed by Mega Man and Bass working as a team in Mega Man and Bass and much later Zero as implied in Mega Man the Power Fighters and all but stated in Mega Man X4 and X5 Bass s armor is dual layered On the bottom is a flat white suit Over that is a black breastplate with flaring shoulderpads with gold trim and a large blue gem in the center Over his waist and lower torso is a black bottom piece edged on the top with gold His lower legs and lower arms are covered with oversized guards also edged in gold but his feet and hands are white His arm cannon is large caliber and has a flat end rather than coming to nearly a point like Mega Man s His eyes are brown almost to the point of being red and he wears a perpetual sneer Finally his helmet flares from his forehead like a pair of wings gold on the bottom and black on the top Fitting in with the musical puns in the names of Mega Man characters Bass is accompanied by his loyal robot dog Treble This pits Rockman Roll Rush and Tango against Bass and Treble Unfortunately in this case the Japanese names are less clever as Forte is accompanied by his dog Gospel Bass is pronounced base as in music In Mega Man 8 his name is occasionally pronounced bahss as with the fish but this is usually attributed to the fact that the voice actors are not native English speakers Bass is only playable in Mega Man and Bass and the Mega Man the Power Battle series and has very different abilities in each In MM B he has a double jump and can fire in any direction As a trade off he can t shoot on the run nor can he charge up his gun making many bosses much harder In MM PB he handles pretty much like Mega Man with a dash he can jump out of instead of a slide His role in the Mega Man fan community in the US is a little odd For some reason Bass is generally cast as either a bumbling fool or a total stoneheaded moron The reasons for this aren t quite clear but Bob and George is an excellent example of this having Bass forget such things as opening a door before he tries to walk through it I like it 1 C thing by TylerE Mon Dec 29 2003 at 16 41 41 The electric bass sometimes referred to as a bass guitar is the most important instrument in modern music It s also one of the most stylistically diverse The first basses were built by Fender in the early 1950 s The electric bass had two primary advantages over the acoustic or upright bass Its biggest advantage was that it did not depend on simple acoustics to produce sound The electronic signal from the magnetic pickups is sent into an amplifier that can boost the sound to over 100 decibel s Secondly the electric bass had frets like a guitar so that notes were precise Thus Fender named their first bass the Precision These factors led to the rapid adoption of the electric bass in many forms of music Others have already documented the instrument itself so I thought I d try something a bit different I m going to attempt to trace the major innovators and the tracks they played on In the name of brevity I am going to limit this to a degree but this should be a good stepping off point Early Innovators The first bassists of note became known in the mid 1960 s Early innovators included James Jamerson All most all Motown records and Donald Duck Dunn who was the backbone of Booker T and the MGs as well as playing in the Stax Records house band behind artists like Otis Redding and Albert King Both Jamerson and Dunn have a style that is simple and to the point but is notable for showing melody Songs representative of this style include Mr Big Stuff Jean Night Soul Limbo Booker T and the MGs and Ask the Lonely The Four Tops Many of so called British Invasion bands drew heavily on this sound and the playing of performers such as Paul McCartney of the Beatles and Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones can be traced to soul records emanating from Nashville and Detroit Rock The next step along the way finds us around 1969 in England The British blues rock groups were taking the charts by storm and many of these records are touchstones of low end groove to this day Big names of this era included Jack Bruce of Cream John Entwhistle of The Who John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin and Geezer Butler of Black Sabbath packed a mighty wallop They were running their basses through giant amplifiers and using a style full of riffs short musical ideas that are repeated throughout a piece Also at this time they began playing solos a first for the instrument Crucial tracks from this period include The Lemon Song Led Zeppelin Crossroads Cream Waitin for the Bus ZZ Top All Along the Watchtower Jimi Hendrix and Fairies Wear Boots Black Sabbath This style of bass playing has evolved some over the years and it s still very common Funk If there has ever been a style of music that spotlights the bass it would have to be funk When it comes to funk there are two people that define the genre The first is Larry Graham Graham was the foundation of Sly
