I think the bassline in Dear Prudence is actually very good, and in Yellow Submarine.

 The Beatles;   Paul John George Ringo and me .. Shannon!  Favourite Beatle; James Paul McCartney.

Aside from the usual suspects, Hey Bulldog, Taxman, Dear Prudence, Something etc.. I really like the bass in Cry, Baby, Cry and Glass Onion.They're surprisingly complex

Surprised nobody mentioned "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", fantastic bassline. "Good Morning,Good Morning" also deserves a shout for it's pummelling runs.paul-mccartney

I think we now have 2 of these bassline threads going but this is the original?

Yeah, but this one is "Beatle" bassline, not "McCartney"!

So, anybody who wants to vote for "Old Brown Shoe" or "Helter Skelter" or one of the other half-dozen non-Paul bass parts can do so right here.

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

Oh yes, I feel like a troll. But is it just me, or do I find Paul's mouth bass in I Will strangely appealing?

1. Whaa? 

2. It's not just you. I like it too. 😀

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.
