ok, so i met this girl who LOVES rhcp (i like them, but they're her FAVORITE band) and since i play bass, i know who flea is.
but here's my dilemma, idk what songs i should learn. i was going to learn rhcp eventually, but if my band played a good rhcp song during the battle of the bands... i KNOW she would date me.
what im asking is for red hot chili peppers song(s) that have a great bass line that she would know. like i want her to know IM playing it for her, ya know?
thanks for your time!
(we're in high school btw)

EDIT: well my guitarist got in a car accident, and f*cked up his arm... damn
thanks to all who posted! it almost helped...
if you guys want to keep posting about Flea's awesomeness for other noobs, feel free to!

You can buy whatever guitar you want, you don't have to be at a certain skill level to buy one. This is real life, not some guitar-playing RPG where you have to unlock new guitars.

Oh God, there are so many. Seriously, get a few of their more recent albums and just listen to them all and pick one.
Only play what you hear. If you don’t hear anything, don’t play anything.

Can´t Stop Bass solo is pretty easy.

I have UG Black Style and I can barely read my signature.

Also, I like black.

By The Way is great to play with its recognisable intro, I ended up with my entire classmates watching me play it just for a laugh, good times Cant Stop is good aswell but if this girl is really into RHCP, just try any of their songs and she should know them. I would recommend By The Way, Torture Me, Charlie, So Much I, Dani California and Snow. See about finding out her favourite song by them without her knowing if you can, then play it to her From what you said, playing her favourite RHCP song is whats going to get you noticed, though you got to drop some hints that the song is for her

Flea's best lines are when he doesn't do that OTT slap he does. Californication and anything from The Mars Volta's De-Loused in the Comatorium is his best work. Sure, Can't Stop or Dani California has the prominant lines, but Californication sounds like it can be a solo bass song.

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

Higher Ground, great bass line, great song, quite hard tho', especially on a five string
Suck My Kiss is great as well.
HAVE A NICE DAY!

If you want something easy Snow would take like 2 minutes to learn. Higher Ground is also another really easy one. Naked in the Rain is fun and there is a really easy solo. Hump de Bump is also a nice one if you want to throw in your own fills.
