YouTuber Davie504 is the bass whisperer, able to summon lines from Mortal Kombat and Zelda with ease. He recently took it a step further, and attempted a medley of 100 bass lines.

Hearing them stitched together in medley form, it’s interesting how the bass lines evolved and and crossed genres. The transition from Pink Floyd’s “Money” to The Beatles’ “Come Together” is especially illuminating. The usual suspects are there—Chic, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Parliament Funkadelic—but there are some deep cuts too. He should collaborate with this guy
