I would definitely recommend those two songs, they are simply amazing.


You like Thousand Foot Krutch?

I love thousand foot krutch.


Sweet. But on second thought, Everyone Like Me isn't exactly simple, but I do love that intro.

les claypool (or maby victor wooten)

les claypool (primus) is by far the best.

he tried out for metallica, and was actually too good.

primus is awsome. the guitars outline the bass.

here he is playing master of puppets on his bass

look him up.




as for what song to learn, as a fellow bass player, I would recommend "neurotica" by meshuggah.

the time signatures are ridiculous, and it is a fun song to play, once you get the hang of it.

Dude, who on here can play YYZ on bass? I can only get through the intro, the really fast part at the beggining, and a little bit of the chorus before my fingers are killing. Like I said before, for awesome old school bass solos listen to My Generation by The Who.
(The solo starts at about 50 seconds into the song)

I also agree that Geddy Lee, Flea, Primus, and Victor Wooten are the best. But micheal Anthony was good to to, he has a nifty little bass solo that he sometimes plays.

Gene Simmons is also OK

Yeah, but can he do a backflip whilst playing bass... Flea f***king can! But I cant complain about any of the bassists mentioned here, Flea is just my favourite because of his style and the music genre RHCP used to play (funk rock).
I am now going to listen to YYZ and attempt to play it, since I've never heard it before :oops: !
