Genre and tuning doesn't really matter (metal preferred though), looking for some hard bass lines to learn that i'll be able to play on a 4-string. The longer the better, tha harder the better (that's what she said). Will take any suggestions that are famous enough so that i'll be able to find a power tab for it.

Try one of the Bach Cello concerto's? Pretty technical and if i remember correctly there are some decent tabs on here
#3
Victor Wooten's Classical Thump if you want something a little more recent. Insanely hard stuff.

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.

Day of the Baphomets by the Mars Volta. The intro alone should provide a good challenge for you.

No Protest the Queero suggestions. Sorry, shoulda mentioned in the original post.
Dream theater has some really sweet lines but their more complex stuff can't be played on a 4-string.

Not like Arif hasn't been the BPOTM for like half a year or anything.
I don't know why the hate for PTH
I guess it's that Metal self-hating elitist thing.

Learn some Death. The Philosopher or Scavenger Of Human Sorrow.

Rush's By-Tor and the Snow Dog it's pretty simple and fun, worth spending the time to learn it though. Get your playing in D nice and solid.

Or learn The Magic Elf's Calamity Castle (my old bass teacher =D)

He had given me the sheet music for it a long time ago, but I've lost it. Owell, learn it by ear, metal boy.

It was the "Protest the Queero" comment.
I'm sure when you have a line like that, you try to find every chance you get to use it (I know I try to use "As I Gay Crying" and "A Gay to Remember")

Just came off sorta douchy when you as for long, challenging metal songs and then say NOT BANDS LIKE PTH CAUSE THEY'RE GAY.

And I wasn't talking about bandwagoning. I was referring to the problem that a lot of metal/hardcore kids run into where it's like "I like death metal. Anything that's not death metal is gay." Just seems like metal kiddies box themselves in so hard.
dig?

I enjoy all genres of music, and don't consider myself a "metal/hardcore kid" whatever that REALLY is. I listen to what i find good. And i think it's acceptable to compare the ones that i find bad to fagg0ts. If gay people have a problem with that, then they can compare bands that they find bad to straight people, I D G A F!

"A Gay to Remember" made me laugh. I'll have to use that.

Any more suggestions?

You don't have to like ay band you don't want, but you asked for complex long metal bass lines. And Unfortunately PTH and Tool are some of the best examples of what you wanted.

learn some Victor wooten,Les Claypool stuff. You'll find most bassest that do what your wanting are using 5+ string basses. So maybe you need a new bass and some more skill using that 5+ string bass to pull off those songs, if you have 4 strings down, you should be able to pickup the 5 string fairly quick.


You could hop on the "I wanna suck Mastadons dick bandwagon" or play some Korn

Doesn't get more complex then learning some heads and then learning the chord changes so you can walk/solo all you want.

Complex pieces/changes? Donna Lee and Giant Steps (cliche but I really don't care)

Actually i've been listening to Something for Larry by Ray Brown, all upright stuff but the songs he's doing have some pretty cool chord changes, would definitely recommend Georgia (the standard, not ray browns time changing super piano sex music)

EDIT: read the OP, i'm shit at metal, do not mind a bit of mastodon right now though
