This question is related to the "Best Bassline" thread below. However, I wanted to start a new topic so my question would be more in the forefront.
How can you hear the bassline so well in all of these songs? I realize some are easier than others, but most are masked by the other instruments. Do you just really concentrate on that one instrument or what? I have a similar idea that the bass is extremely important and do try to listen for it...but it gets really hard at some points. Another problem for me is that I'm deaf in one ear, so with headphones I often hear only parts of the songs. Any ideas?
