i tried out for grade five, and a lot of that stuff is really similar to the slower chili peppers songs, like otherside or scar tissue
Hahahahahahahahahah hahahaha har har har

It'd play "for whome the bells tolls"... get a nice bit of wah for the solo at the start and the intro and then get into the main riff with some distortion.
Black Knight CF-60F Semi-Acoustic.

Black Knight CP200 (Red flamed maple).

Neck-thru 4 string bass.

Acoustic 6 string.

right well say i do for whom the bell tolls, a few questioons if you do not mind

1. will it be hard enough, it needs to be the equivelent of rock school grade 4

2 . i do not own a bass distortion pedal or wah wah pedal my brother said i could use his (guitar) will they be okay

thankyou very much for your help guys it is much appreciated

Actually, I despite how easy the pieces you mentioned are, For Whom The Bell Tolls is ridiculously easy, if you use the album version.

Maybe the anaesthesia solo if your chops are up, or just the first half if they aren't.

A cello suit is another great choice. It may not be your normal sort of music, but they show skill, dexterity and that you are more than a metal head who got a bass to play along to CDs with, even if that is true.

Too much of one band/genre may be unwise, it shows that you just play what you play, instead of adapting and exploring new realms. This is what people want from their students, music or otherwise.

And I, for one, do not know the rock school grade system, so i have no idea what you are asking.
I have:
Acoustic B200H+B115 cab, Schecter Stiletto Custom 4, Rondo Fretless, Boss EQ-7.

Some men just want to watch the world burn. And they work at Behringer.
