I think it'd be damn near impossible to play "Hamburger Train". Recreating the guitar noise would be hell, you need a ****load of pedals for some of those. But I'm curious as to how Les got that sound.

It probably means rest. I use power tabs though.....I never understood the versions I found at most tab sites.

thanks, also i never really got what power tabs are, what are they
#12
^ they actually play a MIDI file (sounds like a video game) of the tab so you can listen then directly copy it, and you can know the tab is correct.

this is an odd one, but yngwie malmsteen's "blitzkrieg" has a bass copying the guitar line in the bridge (HARD!, pick might be needed).
#13
Atheist, Spastic Ink, Cryptopsy, Gorguts etc...

many really technical bands... especially Gorguts .. really weird approach to playing
#14
Finger Style or Slap? For fingerstyle, i actually think Chromatic Fantasy is the hardest.. or The sustained pace of that song is unreal..

Basically, the hardest things are those which are not written for bass, but have been transcribed (like CF)..

Throw away your television-RHCP

It sounds good and its pretty simple to get a rough idea to play it, but trying to keep the shuffle sound is hard.
Quote by IndianRockStar
The bass SHOULD cover the bottom end at the very least.

Xanada by Rush.

Mainly because you need a doubleneck bass/guitar to play Geddy's parts.

I know what ur saying, but i ment the shuffle technique, not the song, it was mearly an example of it cos its hard to keep the feel.

Errrrmmmm, i think' One eyed king' by 'you me and the enemy', that is hard seems as there ain't any tab for it, so you have to listen to it and figure it out.

If you really want to challenge yourself, transcribe something onto bass. Now there is a challenge..

Well if your starting to go into advanced territory have a go at teen town by Weather Report. It isn't super fast as such, just twisty with some at times, odd placement of the notes rhythmically. If you can play this perfectly you will have gained quite good dexterity and rhythm.


A lot of Jaco stuff is great to learn, like his arrangements of Donna Lee,Chromatic Fantasy and America the Beautiful (which he titled as Amerika). Amerika is probably the easiest of his solo pieces and is a nice start into the world of solo playing. His own compositions like Portrait of Tracy which is great for achieving a good grasp of natural harmonics and also pieces like Continuum.

Stuff by Victor Wooten is great for even more advanced players and gives a decent grasp of tapping and a very good grasp of contemporary slapping techniques.

So check out Norwegian Wood (his arrangement of the Beatles tune, I suggest you ignore the flamenco flavoured intro for now though, it is a bit mad), U Can't Hold No Groove, Classical Thump for double thumbing etc.

Stuart Hamm is another good one, check out Country Music for some basic and fun tapping and his arrangement of Moonlight Sonata for more advanced tapping.

Also check out Michael Manring for his amazing solo pieces, even if it is just for inspiration, very few of his compositions are tabbed out by anyone, considering he plays in all sorts of tunings and has some very special custom made basses. But you can find his arrangement of Purple Haze on the net here: http://www.cliffengel.com/bass_lessons/online/free_bass_lessons/solo_bass/purple_haze/

Check out the audio and video section for a video performance by Cliff.

Hope this is of some help.

only ash remains-necrophagist, really hard intro with lots of awkward slurs, takes a lot of practice, a lot of strength and a lot of control.
slammed my penis in the toilet seat when I was 7-8yrs old,when I tried to run away,it got caught and stretched out, now it is huge,and I have the good ol shxtter to thank

Now Your Ships Are Burned - Yngwie Malmsteen

Many fast runs, and a very fast bass solo. Malmsteen records with a pick, but its possible with fingers
#29
Trilogy Suite Op. 5 - Yngwie Malmsteen:P


but make sure to use fingers and not a pick like malmsteen does on his recordings.
from experience..once you know the phrygian runs and whatnot..the song gets somewhat easy..fingers or pick...though I suck with a pick on bass.


and yeah..classical thump - victor wooten has been metioned a few times..but it is quite the piece. i just can't seem to thump

flow my tears - Stu Hamm is fun..but make sure to tap the higher notes.

Magic Mirror - Yngwie Malmsteen also has a few intense runs...


have fun!

Classical thump. HARD


Classical thump isn't that imposible once you get the double thumbing down at the start, it takes time to crack it though. The rest of it is just takes practice to remember what to play
