Roundabout by Yes has a great bass line. Don't know if it would help you woo any ladies, though, unless said ladies are bass players.

Funny you should mention "Roundabout" by Yes and overlook the perfect choice on the same album.  Flip the record to side two and listen to "Mood for a Day".  Steve Howe blends in some nice Spanish influence on this gem, and it's fairly easy for an intermediate guitarist to pick up (I learned it when I was 14).

As for something on bass to woo the ladies, I'm a bit stumped; perhaps you should thumb through Mel Bay's J.S. Bach for Bass, which is great for building technique and, let's face it, ladies dig Johann Sebastian.

Good call on both points.
I'm still not sure how many ladies are all about the bass line, though. In my experience (all else being equal) the pecking order for ladies generally goes Lead guitarist --> Singer --> Drummer --> Rhythm guitarist --> Bassist --> Keyboardist (if there is one), unless the bassist in question is Gene Simmons.

Refraining from making any comments involving the word "roofies".

Yeah, that's pretty much the pecking order.  As a bassist, I embraced it by smoking a pipe on stage like Donald "Duck" Dunn.  The only problem: dumb frat-boys constantly asking, "So what's in the pipe?  Heh-heh-heh!"

For the record, a 50/50 blend of Paladin and Captain Black, white pouch.

Ah, frat boys.... Can't live with them, can't feed them through a wood chipper and tell their parents they ran off to Mexico for spring break and just never came back.

Dont know about "wooin' th' ladys" ,  but as far as I am concerned they wasn't anyone who could exploit an electric bass like Frank Zappa
