You know, you've saved up for months to get the bass/amp/effect etc. (delete as applicable) you plug it all in, get all ready and....


What's the first thing you play? What sound do you first wanna come out of this new bass/amp/effect that you know is just gonna blow you away?


personally, I just love to hit an open E, and do some random riffage/soloing for about 5 minutes before I need to lie down with a wet towel over my face.


So, what about you?


P.S. w00, i made an original thread in the bass forum

Kyuss - Welcome to Sky Valley. I play the album straight through (skipping Space Cadet because it's acoustic) because it covers a lot of ground playing-wise and it blows my head off every time I listen to it.

(good going coming up with an original thread btw!)

Metallica- My Friend Misery

I don't really know why...it's a habit. After that I just improvise and make sure I play each string, chords, double stops, slap, pop, tap and all that good stuff so I know everything sounds good.

Nice job with an original thread too. This one isn't so...

coffee shop-RHCP

great song except for the verse, that guitar part makes me cringe(i love the verse bass part though). When i got my new bass for christmas(and i hate it) i busted out the second solo and my parents almost passed out. and followed by that, skinny sweaty man-RHCP, and then YYZ-Rush(damn i love that song )
