Anyway, here is a moment of sublime bass note choices by the late great Chris Squire. The section starts at 3:24 and the most beautiful bass notes I've ever heard start at 4:24 - it's that little run that starts in a high register and resolves on a low note. That one moment is everything.
Another day's at end Mama says she's tired again No one can even begin to tell her I hardly know what to say But maybe it's better that way If poppa were here I'm sure he'd tell her
