Buy both pickups. Rub icyhot on both of them. Sandwich your penis between them and walk to the nearest homeless shelter with your brand new icyhot penis sandwich.

yea i was gonna say red hot chili peppers...like around the world intro i think is on bass


That really isn't very hard you just need to pluck the strings quickly.

Some of the Chilis older stuff like Nobody Weird Like Me is very hard and fast slap bass.

Around the world has no plucking......
Its a easy song. Just have to move down the fretboard fast.

Death From Above 1979? I guess? I mean, being as the band consists solely of bass and drums, I would assume they've got some semi-challenging stuff.

But I could be wrong.

i checked out the tabs but it wasnt anything difficult.
but its a tad harder than the rioting pop punk.
worst basslines for a subgenre of rock.
i wish more bands would use harder basslines, rather than just the root notes and nothing spicy.
like Thursday.

Yeah, that about answers the question right there. You just weren't looking it the right places

Enjoy your bass!
