its not a solo but the bass for hysteria by muse is pretty cool, especially the main part.
theres plenty of tabs for it on this site and its not too hard.

the bass solo in maxwell murder by rancid is awsome, its hard but it gives ya something to aim for.
the start of journey to the end by rancid is good and not hard.

Yes - Heart of the sunrise.

But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

^ Kuru is hardly a bass solo.

I always recommend Love Thang by Stu Hamm because i think it's a great solo, easily impresses and uses chords. sounds even better when you use Chorus like Stu does. tabs in the stu hamm site

my generation by the who, thats a cool bass solo and club foot by kasabian has a solo thats pretty easy, and it sounds good.

how about constructing your own bass solo? Much more satisfying, and will get you more noticed by other bassists. By writing your own bass solo, you are giving yourself writing experience, and you'll be able to understand your limitations better, and be able to work on smashing those limitations to pieces.

ah, ok... wouldn't have suggested that if you mentioned the situation although I would have said it at some point anyway.... if you have the time to sit down and work it through, and are competent at two handed tapping (playing a bassline and a melody line at the same time), try As My Guitar Gently Weeps. I've started it, and it works out quite well, if you have the co-ordination. You can also play a slightly souped up bass version of the intro to Master of Puppets, up around the higher frets on the higher strings. Detune half a step, and use the artificial harmonic on the 21st fret... here's the example:



Gb---------<21>---------12-12h14h12---10
Db----------------<21>-------------------------
Ab-----------------------------------------------
Eb-----0-----------------------------------------



When I get it written down, I'll post it here if you want, I've nearly fii#nished transposing it on Guitar Pro (again... accidentally deleted it before)

How about Mr Big by Free.

Although the bassline is quite sparse during the verse and chorus, it beautifully underpins the guitar line. For a school piece it shows how bass can be used sparingly to be effective, and also makes good use of chords. Finally, it lets rip into a lovely solo at the end (which lastes just shy of two minutes).

As the song lasts about 6 minutes in total, you could perform an abridged version spanning one verse, one chorus and then going into the solo. If you're performing alongside the song, then you could always just start at the beginning of the second verse.

forget all of those no offense n do "anethesia" by cliff burton(r.i.p.)
the best solo prolly,if u can play this with your fingers dude ur pro hahah

wow, this forum really needs to broaden it's horizons a bit.... every time a bass solo thread comes up, it's all the same stuff being said. It's a bit sad really, how everyone just seems to fixate on Anaesthesia and PoT... they're good, but there ARE other bass solos, you know?

There's Solar Groove by John Myung, Charlotte's Song by Stu Hamm, Merciless by Billy Sheehan.... I could list many, many more.... try and be more thoughtful when giving other people names of bass solos, try to think of something not as well known, but equally as awesome. We don't really want everyone on here to play only Anaesthesia and PoT do we?

And Anaesthesia is not the best bass solo by FAR.

victors solo on sinister minister is pretty cool, but the whole song isnt a solo

^Along the same line as these people, it might be an idea to transpose a well known song and arrange it as a bass solo. Doesn't necessarily have to be a guitar solo.

In fact, one song that I quite enjoy playing as a bass solo is "In The Mood" by the Glenn Miller Orchestra. As a performance piece it again shows a variety of skills. It uses chords, and arpeggios, which are more commonly associated with pieces played on guitar or piano. It's built very strongly around two phrases, with some slight variations, and there is a very nice solo.
