I'm in the mood to do something very melodic, maybe involving some tapping. I'm only on a four string, though.

Anyone got any suggestions?

The part just before and during the big epic "No One Is Going To Take Me Alive..." in Knights Of Cydonia by Muse has a synth tapping part. Tis wicked.

But then again, a lot of Muse has awesome melodic bass lines.

Summer Skin - Death Cab For Cutie

Very easy, but nice & gentle, fun to play.

If you can find some decent tabs, Victor Wooten beasts all over the place, look through some of his solo stuff and you'll be pleased. =) Jaco Pastorius does some great stuff, too.

The interlude part of Orion by Metallica will get a lot of recommendations. Seemann by Rammstein also is quite pretty, and perhaps Elvis Costello's I Don't Wanna Go to Chelsea.

I like the double bass lines snf solos in Herbie Mann's version of Comin' Home Baby.

Try playing Amazing grace by victor wooten. There is a couple different versions he plays of it though i believe. And proly my favorite by him Norwegian wood. That song is pretty technical though.

Also portraite of tracy by Jaco.

I don't really understand why basses have 24 frets, I mean, I've never seen a bassist playing more than the 12 fret.

Seeman by Rammstein. Amazing bassline, not the sorta thing you'd expect from a band like Rammstein.

Moonlight sonata is very melodic.
Also the bass solo in Orion by metallica is very nice on the ol' ears.
Also im a huge fan of hall of the mountain king, do something with that and it will be great.

I can't agree that Paul McCartney is amazing, especially compared to players that have come forward since - but he has his spot in history I suppose. Come Together is an exception to my general lackluster outlook on the Beatles.

Hard recommending a good song - there are so many, and some people have different outlooks on "melodic." I mean, I'd tell you to learn Obscura's Anticosmic Overload, and have some Stu Hamm worshipper tell me I'd ridiculous. Is there a particular genre you prefer?
...actually, I'm a drinker with a writing problem.
