you're kidding right? sure it sounds cool, but a paraplegic baby with down's syndrome and 2 fingers on either hand could play a korn song.

only try korn if you have a 5-string and are feeling in the mood for somthing very easy.

On topic. After Forever, by Sabbath, is really fun to play when you get it down. Also Orion by Metallica is tons of fun.

Its better to regret the things you did, rather than the things you didnt do.

I second Schism and The Pot. Some of the coolest basslines I've heard in a long time.

#23
You know you guys are so into metal and hard rock ! you should listen and play some other styles of music, it will help you greatly. Play some funk, some blues, some jazz.. take some classical pieces transcribed for bass and learn those. trust me, it will really help your playing.

Look up these artists and learn some of their tunes:

No Doubt
Parliament
Stone Roses
Sting/The Police
Blondie (in particular Rapture..)
Bob Marley
Charlatans
Doves
The Vines
Blue (Boys and Girls especially)

Just a few, but all have funky, catchy basslines that you wouldnt think to normally play.
#24
dude, I play a lot of Stu Hamm, Jaco etc... metal and hard rock is what I mostly play, but I do dabble in other areas... I've learned a lot of basement jaxx bass stuff, and jamiroquai... I even learned how to play the bass and vocal line to wonderful tonight by eric clapton
*can't beat good old polyrhythms*
#25
I'm too lazy to come up with a new list so I'll post the same exact thing I posted in the other thread that is almost the same exact thing as this thread anyway...maybe I'll add a few songs...

Take the Power Back by Rage Against the Machine
Schism by Tool
Soul To Squeeze by Red Hot Chilli Peppers
Severed by Mudvayne
Forty Six and 2 by Tool
Master of Puppets by Metallica
Longview by Greenday
Rearrange by Limp Bizkit
Creep by Radiohead
Paranoid Android by Radiohead
Sober by Tool

And if you're feeling brave try these
Scarified by Racer X (really fun song to play once you get most of it down)
Jerry Was a Racecar Driver by Primus, (Its helped me develop a decent tapping technique)
or Aeroplane by Red Hot Chilli Peppers, (not too hard but it has a great slapbass part that takes a while to learn)
Portrait of Tracy by Jaco Pastorius
Classical Thump by Victor Wooten, (I can only play like the first 10 measures, I cant do triplets with my thumb yet... )
"All matter is merely energy condensed into a slow vibration and we're all one consciousness experiencing ourselves subjectively, theres no such thing as death, life is just a dream and we're the imagination of ourselves."

Can anyone give me the correct tab on "carousel" by blink 182?

I know it's in the index of tabs but the one that had 50 votes for 5 stars doesn't show anything for me...So if anyone could PM or post the tabs here, I'd greatly appriciate it

thumb down on the open string and make sure your thumb goes under the string, hammer on the note, and then pluck back up with your tumb. practice it very slowly in scale patterns and what not playing triplets, and gradually increase speed.

my problem with classical thump is that by the 50th measure or so, i start to get cramped up. i just dont have the physical strength in my arm to play it all the way through yet

that explains it


Thats the double thumping technique that Wootens famous for right?...I've never seen him do it so I had trouble figuring out the triplets part...I'm gonna go practice it now...
