* Other genres/songs you usually play.
i usually play comfortably numb , sweet home alabama , hotel of california

Hi, I'm after a metal/rock shreddy instrumental I can practise my string skipping and sweeping on. Tuning doesn't matter, I can go anywhere from E to B. For an idea of difficulty, I can play these songs pretty much:
Fire And The Fury ~ Firewind
Godfather Solo ~ Slash
Parisienne Walkways ~ Gary Moore

I've looked into stuff like "Little Savage" by Yngwie Malmsteen, but that's too hard for me. I'm currently working on "Emotions" by Galneryus but can't play the sweeping parts, and ideally need a song with some easier sweeping I can work my way up from.

Thanks!
Main gear:
Edwards Crying Star E-CS-140
LTD Gus 600 FR
Epiphone Les Paul Plustop Pro
Gibson SG 60's Tribute
ZW-45 > OG-1 > NS-2 > GE-7 > DD-3 > 6505+ 112

Hi everyone,
I've been playing rock/metal in the past 5-6 years.
Now i'd like to go a bit on blues/funk,not something too slow or i know i'll get bored quickly.
If possible something that can be played without a base.
For example i like this song a lot,this one too but i don't think i can handle the last one atm.
So i was looking for something blues/funk along those line but not as hard as the second one,possible something that there's a tab available.

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

I recently got to listen to Royal Blood.
The whole album is sick,if i have to five a title,maybe "Figure it out" and "Ten Tonne Skeleton". There's a bass but it also do as guitar so...yeah,they could be cool to play.

I got a cheap guitar for Christmas and I need a goal song, that I need to learn before I splurge and buy a nice one.

So what song says, I'm still really new at this but I'm making progress? Something I start learning after I can play a couple other songs.

Hotel California, Stairway to Heaven, Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, Under the Bridge...any of those will take a bit of practice but are not too difficult.

So is this thread still relevant?

If anyone could recommend some artists and songs from styles like motown, funk and RnB that have groovy basslines and overall fun bass parts it'd be much appreciated. I'm not looking for walking bass songs, or slapping, just classic, groovy and funky basslines and bassists. More modern artists and poppier RnB stuff is ok as well, as long as the bass is there.

I've been playing bass for about 6 years and generally play stuff like prog and metal, so I don't expect to run into any problems on the technical front. Just looking for some fun bass jamming.

If it's motown bass you're after pretty much search for James Jamerson

James Jamerson was the bassist for most Motown hits. So if you start with searching out his stuff you'll probably find something along the lines of what you are after.

These suggestinos aren't all motown nor are they James Jamerson (some of them are)but I consider the bass in some of these songs to be pretty groovy...
Superfreak
My Girl
Car Wash
Smooth Criminal
Higher Ground (RHCP)
I Need Your Lovin (not a big fan of the song but that bass is groovy)
I Heard it Through the Grapevine
Chain of Fools

A bit late and not sure if it's what you're looking for but:-

Patrice Rushen (I like the bassline in forget me not)
Grand Funk Railroad
James Brown (too obvious?)
Chic
Sly & the Family Stone (Thank You is a personal favorite of mine)
Wild Cherry
Jamiroquai (more acid jazz but still pretty funky)

I'm getting back into playing bass for the first time in ages. I can play all of Peace Sells by Megadeth and all of Zombie Ritual by Death, and I'm making my way through Evisceration Plague by Cannibal Corpse (the only inconvenience being I don't have a 5 string bass), so if anybody could recommend me some metal songs of around that difficulty, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks

You're gonna have to be a lot more specific. What type of blues? Give some examples. Otherwise it's no different from typing in blues music in google.
#2382
John Lee Hooker
Lightning Hopkins
Leadbelly

Those three are some of my favourite.

Bob Dylan does a few blues numbers on his first album (Fixin to Die, In my time of dyin etc)
Eric Clapton's unplugged album has a few

If you want something challenging then Hendrix or Stevie Ray Vaughan are pretty good. You can do some beginner versions of their stuff too and work on adding complexity.

The Beatles even did a few blues numbers. (well more than a few) Here's a list:
http://www.aaronkrerowicz.com/beatles-blog/the-12-bar-blues-in-beatles-music-part-2-analyses

The Door did some nice bluesy numbers L A Woman is a pretty bluesy tune

Cream, LedZeppelin, Rolling Stones

Johnny Cash has more than a couple of 12 bar blues numbers in his catalogue.

And of course Elvis Presley.

However many of these suggestions are blues inspired rock. Blues with a back beat rock rhythm.

If you want some old school blues then try those first three fellas I mentioned as well as Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf, Blind Lemon Jefferson, and of course the blues master Robert Johnson.

I am an intermediate/advanced lvl musician and I am looking for a song to improve my picking speed.
I play for two qnd a half years and I listen only to metal (mostly melodeath/djent/lamb of god=dont know what style is it supposed to be)

Thanks for help
#2385
As ever, I'm sort of drifting in and out of wanting to get back into playing both guitar and bass. I listen to a lot of things but mostly play metal of all stripes. I guess I'm an intermediate player on both instruments, although I'll admit I'm not great with playing fast and soloing.
Any recommendations to help me get my feet back into the water would be great.
Edit: in terms of bass songs I can play 'Ten Thousand Strong' (Iced Earth), Chief Rebel Angel (Entombed), Freezing Moon (Mayhem), Blood and Thunder (Mastodon), and Evisceration Plague (Cannibal Corpse), so stuff around that skill level would be appreciated
Thanks

I've been playing guitar for about three years now. Skill level of fingerpicking is something around "Wake Me Up When September Ends", "Nothing Else Matters", and "Behind Blue Eyes".

I'm a huge fan of trying something completely different when I'm bored, so I'm looking for a fingerpicking song on acoustic guitar that is not in 4/4 time signature, to get out of that 4/4 mindset. Preferably something "weird" such as 5/4.
Out and Proud!

Today's song recommendation:

Equipment:
  • Rocktile Punsher P-Bass
  • Career Stage Series SG
  • Suzuki F-90 acoustic guitar
  • A Ukulele

I would love some song suggestions. I sing and play guitar.

Genres I like are alternative/blues/classic rock/some r&b/some pop. Overall I always prefer acoustic stuff. I want something that isn't overdone.

Bands/musicians I like are Cage the elephant/Elvis Costello/Lissie/Otis Redding/Panic! At the Disco/Queen/The faces (just to name a few.)

My skill level is probably advanced beginner or intermediate guitar wise. I've been playing a few years just inconsistently.

Honestly for me it's more about singing with guitar accompaniment (sorry).

My vocal range is D3-E6. I like to belt and I'm probably a mezzo soprano. I've been told I'm like the indie baby of Adele and Demi Lovato but I'm trying to get away from pop.

Some songs I play are Don't Dream it's Over, Toxic (sort of sung like Melanie Martinez), Crazy (Gnarles Barkley). Pursuit of happiness (Lissie version.

I want a song that is fun and engaging for me but that also has some meaning to it hopefully. I don't really like singing while finger picking (I guess you could say I'm PICKY!) But I am fine with mild riffing and of course all major, minor, 7th chords.

Thank you if you suggest songs for me. This is my first post and I hope I'm doing it right. Also I apologize for the length. Thank you so much!!
