I just need some songs that require tapping on the fretboard. Nothing hard because these will be the first ones that I learn.

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

the power ranger theme son has some cool tapping
the one solo has tapping in it sounds cool but really easy
van halen is known for it

Eruption by Van Halen was the first tapping bit I learned. Or does it have to be a bass part?

Ok, then, how about something like DMV or Jerry Was A Race Car Driver by Primus?

Broken One by Trivium has a great tapping intro. It might be too hard for a newbie. Tapping is actually really hard. Though, if you want, I can redirect you to some videos that can help you build up your tapping ability before you go and actually learn songs with tapping it.

Also, John Myung from Dream Theater has some decent tapping in Metropolis, but, it's really hard to play. And so does Ryan Martinie from Mudvayne, especially in songs like Scream With Me and Happy. Also, Paolo Gregoletto from Trivium, has some decent solo tapping in Becoming the Dragon.

If you really want to study tapping, I'd suggest you start reading up on a guy named Victor Wooten, as well. That guy is a bass player at the master class.

I know you're lookin for something easy but check out Perverse Suffering by Cannibal Corpse. Bad ass tapping in that one.

Bloodmeat by Protest the hero is actually incredibly fun to play...

Oh and Severed by Mudvayne.
I am me. Live with it.

Almost any core song. It's one of the ways they trick ignorant 15 year olds into thinking they have talent. Its the perfect place to start. Protest the hero has several songs with tapping just kinda slapped in to add time.
#13
Elephant Talk by King Crimson.

It's originally played on a Chapman's Stick, but it's also playable on a bass guitar.

'Knights of Cydonia' - Muse

+1 for that one.
The part where they are singing "No ones gonna take me alive" if you don't know the song... I learned it in about 15 mins or so, so it isn't that difficult to do just kinda hard to keep straight in my head.

We have a list of 'songs you should learn'. Look for the ones with the T beside them.


Yes I know but the songs that they have suggested that have tapping in them are way to hard.

Do not be dissing Arif.


TS, i've found a good way for people startin out is to practise tappin octaves; try tapping the bassline for Uprising by Muse, good exercise.

Of course if you can bear it, there's no better way for building finger strength than tapping chord shapes and scales.

Wow, no need for all the hatred.

TS, check out the line in Knights of Cydonia that's already been mentioned, and the bridge section in Bloodmeat by protest the Hero.

Metropolis by Dream Theater. It can be hard at first, but it's also a great exercise to build up strength.

Why does it have to be? It is a pretty easy part that can easily be played on bass.

This is about the easiest you can possibly get for tapping, it is literally tapping and pulling off to fretted notes. I can't think of an easier tapping part.

Not very hard but fun. Also when you got some exprience you can try some fun and familiar Brain Drill.

Or Viraemia.

The first tap song I learnt was Jerry Was A Racecar Driver, nice and unconventional. I also used to just do minor arpeggios, in a gu*tard way.

There is a kind of bass tapping solo in Knights of Cydonia by Muse. I think it sounds impressive considering how easy it is to play.

confessions by slipknot, almost all the song is in tapping, and isn't too hard
(suggesting protest the hero as 1st song to learn? omg I don't have the same view of "easy" as you guys have ^^)
