I was on.

I had been cruising GB&C I'll have you know.

but it was all updated anyway.

I put Holy Diver in hard rock though, it doesn't really say metal or classic rock to me. so you know. is that cool with you herbivore?

Herbivore? I think that's a new one.

Anyways, that fits.

I got another one:

Inaction - We Are Scientists

If it goes in Pop, it will be medium, if it goes in Alternative, it will be easy.

Tough call, but I'd say alternative fits it a bit better.

Edit: If you have the time, maybe listen to it.

Here's a great little reggae tune from the Studio One era, with a cool little reggae hook.

Why is Five Magics classified as easy?

That song is probably expert with pick. Higher than expert with a pick.

Trust me on that on, guys.

Not really. I think actually for the composition and style of the song that it is easier with a pick. The only bits that are approaching difficult in my opinion are some of the odd finger position switches with the chords.
#130
I agree with Saint, that Five Magics shouldn't be easy. But it shouldn't be expert either, that's unrealistic. I'd say it was Intermediate as it took me a while to get round the hand movements, and there's a bit of string skipping involved in the introduction.

How about Master Blaster (Jammin')-Stevie Wonder.

Great reggae style line, then a huge riff in the middle. Also easy to improvise around the main line.

One of my favourites.

I've been listening to a decent amount of Graham Maby lately so this needs to be added in:

And to quote Joe Jackson:
“Graham tends to overplay,” says Jackson, “but he does it so well that instead of asking him to play less, I’ll ask the other players to get out of his way.

So maybe this goes in Ska/Reggae...

Really nice thread, but have you ever considered adding classical style too?

And dream theater would suit better under metal, not alt/rock.

I was playing through tunes I knew a few years ago, and I'm kind of surprised that Welcome Home is listed as an expert song. There are songs from that album that are much more difficult (and fun!) to play. The Willing Well II - Fear Through The Eyes of Madness drove me crazy for months!

I know that the list is kind of set, so it might be a moot point, but I just had to say something.
#144
Quote by MustangMan311
Not really sure what it would fit in, maybe funk or pop, but "Sir Duke" by Stevie Wonder is a must-have on this list. Seriously.

MD - Sir Duke - Stevie Wonder


He should have a seperate category all of his own


+1 to Sir Duke

ok, well since you (the humanity) closed my ****ing thread for no ****ing reason:
Can you give a few suggestions as to a few songs that i can play? im looking for more rockish songs that SOUND good. im not the best bass player in the world, but im alright, so no impossibley hard songs plz!
and by rock i mean upbeat, something that doesnt sound depressing by only staying on the E string. thanks!
(your favorite bass lines are accepted as well )

This thread is pretty cool thanks!!!

3. EZ-Jammin-Bob Marley

But...is that the only MD song you could think of for ska/reggae? That's not even one of 311's reggae songs. I mean, I can live with you mentioning 311 in the same category with REGGAE legends Bob and Livingston, but Come Original doesn't even have any reggae or ska elements in it...

Could somebody suggest a few Jamiroquai tunes to me? I know

Cosmic Girl
Too Young To Die
Traveling Without Moving
When You Gonna Learn

already. Preferably it would tracks that have been tabbed (and tabbed well) on the internet already but that isn't necessary - I'm lazy, and would prefer it, but I should also be working on my ear. Especially when the funk is being brought at maximum capacity.

Thanks!

Runaway-Jamiroquai is a tad cheesy but I love the bass throughout.
Uses lots of the neck and has plenty of spots for improv.

Deeper Underground has a nice riff, and would sound great with a fuzz pedal, but it's fun anyway.

And Virtual Insanity is a funky one, but I found it fairly challenging, loads of syncopations.

Hope that helped aguacateojos
#152
Alright has a killer groove to it, not their most creative bass but it is great for the song.

I also am giving Canned Heat a go, it isn't too crazy but it's nice, fast and playable. There are just a few changes that aren't making sense immediately, just means I'll have to slow down and listen before I try to play. I'll check out Alright later today, thanks for the suggestion.

Holy God, I can't stop listening to Canned Heat. So groovy. And I love having the low B, but tuning down and having a ****ty practice amp are not conducive to good tone.

My band is covering "The Willing Well II: Through The Eyes Of Madness" by Coheed And Cambria, so I am learning that currently.

It's a pretty fun fast little line to play.

Long-ass song though. lol

#155
That's awesome, I love that song. When I first tried to play the first part it was laughable. Even now I have trouble staying on time. By the end of it my right hand is usually crying.

Last month I went back to a lot of the tunes I was playing two years ago and realized that I can play that entire album and almost all of In Keeping Secrets. 21:13 has some absurd moments, though.

Sorry for the late reply, but really? Skitzo? I have neither the time nor the patience to sit and learn how to sweep to that level and have that sort of finger speed. Don't mean to complain, but surely you can agree with me on this one right?

I agree.

but you asked Sheehan or Nitti, that was the first in my head. anyone else know a good one?

I would like some songs to learn. I like Metal but I'm in to most of the stuff listed here. I play fingerstyle and at the moment I play a lot of older Metallica. Ride the Lightning (song) is about as fast as I can go. (Not sure where in the song but it's straight eighth notes and probably the fastest spot in the song.) I want songs to improve both hands.
