I really like the sound and liveliness of the bass at some points in the song Hero by Mariah Carey as heard on her Music Box album.
Here are the main moments where it happens in the official album version of the song: 1:26, 1:34, 1:42, 1:55.
However, the bass line appears to be played with a synth bass or even programmatically, by Walter Afanasieff, according to the credits information available here.
Any idea of how to reproduce this kind of bass sound using a real electric bass guitar? (model, strings, amplifier, etc.)
