This has probably already been started, but I thought it would be interesting to see your favorite songs to play.

my favorite would be either hysteria by muse or master of puppets.
Those aren't the toughest songs, but I have so much fun playing them.

what about you guys?
I always revert back to "bullet in the head" or "don't forget me"

they are so simple and repetitive and groovy

I recently stumbled upon I Heard It Through the Grapevine while screwing about, been digging that the last few days.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Warwick Fortress>>Acoustic AB50
Rain When I Die- Alice In Chains; It's just awesome.
Would-(" "); I can play and fail-sing at the same time.
I Don't Know Anything- Mad Season; I can play and not fail quite so much at singing.
Bombtrack- Rage Against The Machine; Fuckin' GROOVE.

| Call me Matt. | | I like music. |
1) Sober - Tool, Chords sound bad ass on bass

2) The Pot - Tool, just listen to it and youll know why

3)Nutshell _ Alice in chains, just a sweet sounding song.

Hard to really pick a favorite song to play but Id say those top my list. I could just say any tool song followed by metallica. I could list 100's of songs cause I like em all. I am heavily influenced by tool even before I heard them my style was similar. I just started learning Rise against songs. Just love the off timing and timing changes makes songs so much fun.

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.
Black Dog by Led Zeppelin, now that is a monster of a riff.

I'm just joking Moog. you know nothing can tear our friendship apart, not even the fact we are miles apart, I am right there beside you, yelling, "Chug it, ya little wimp!"
Lately I've been screwing around with RATM.

But since the beginning of my bass-playing, I've never gone a day without screwing around in the blues scale.
I'm addicted to the little bass solo in The Mars Volta's "Take the Veil Cerpin Taxt"
