Hey guys, I need a song to impress a girl I like, I know she likes Pink Floyd so I learned Money(and play it well), She loves all the 70s rock bands, so what are some other songs that have a cool bassline, also I am kinda a begginner.

Anyway's it's kind of dumb to learn stuff just to impress a girl, I'm sorry but that's the truth behind it. Just play stuff you like playing and don't adapt to her likes.

Well, that's better than playing to impress. It'll help you develop your skill too. Also, Rush and Zeppelin would be the best to work on. La Villa Strangiato and the Lemon Song.

You can't deny that a big attraction of playing guitar is the female attention :]
If video games make you violent, does monopoly make you a millionaire?

OK, but that doesn't mean that you should take advantage of an instrument as a chick magnet. Music should be the main reason, women second (or something else I'm missing?).

LedEdit: Discipline could be another reason too.

If getting chicks is a motivation to getting better technique and playing more, why shouldn't it be?

Because any women who is legitimately impressed with a beginner's playing and dates/does them because of it is an idiot 99% of the time.

Example:
Dude: I play bass
Chick: Cool!
Dude: Here's a song (playing song)
Chick: That's hot!
etc...

JudasEdit: Excuse my generic words.

How did no one else mention this? We all fail.

PurpleEdit: Or, do it with double-stops exactly as the guitar. Chords/double-stops make stuff look fancier.

If this was the pit I would say i cum blood (which would showcase some serious technical skill).

But it isn't, so I will agree with what some have said and learn some Rush lines - the fills in YYZ alone should be enough to impress her.

Those aren't really chords...

EDIT EDIT: After re-reading your original post, I would recommend Tom Sawyer by Rush - it may be a challenge, but it's not too hard IMO.

They're from the '60s but I hear that chicks dig the Beatles.

They also dig originality, though. Ain't that a bitch. Gets me all the time.

I said chords because double-stops is (counts on fingers) 6 characters longer (7 if including the dash) and I am very lazy when it comes to typing. Anyways, you get the idea.

Because then you're concerned with the benefits, not the art.

One time at a gig some girl actually came to me and asked what else my fingers can do. Apparently 3 finger patterns are sexual.

If she wants "bass lessons" she's probably interested anyway, so I don't think you have to worry about showing off your amazing playing. Instead try talking to her, it usually helps.

As a side note, being able to play guitar has got me 0 girls. Writing my own songs however, has got me plenty .
"I hope I die before I get old"-Words of Pete Townsend, 1945-

"I hope I die before I turn into Pete Townsend"-Words of Kurt Cobain, 1967-1994

Funny old world eh.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.
