Red face Electric bass mixing and recording

Electric bass appears to be one of the most difficult instrument to record, even if it usually seems to be one of the less important instrument into a standard mix to a lots of hears.

I was wondering how you, guys, proceed to record an electric bass ? Mics, preamps used / where do you EQ, when do you apply comp... ?

Please also mention what sound you plan to get in each case, and what kind of music that bass is recorded for thumbsup
