Hysteria.

anyone who doesn't play bass will be blown away by it, but the hardest part is just keeping it going for the whole song.

joe satriani- crystal planet, the bassline is very cool when the song gets going.

yea, but perhaps this was meant to be...
there could be a handful of stoners somewhere in Jersey that are on the verge of creating a new metal...a new thrash metal...

...or were all screwed =]

people, please... all these are said constantly... let's try and rock the boat a little?

A good little ditty is Not Falling by Mudvayne... you can easily get away with it without slapping. If you play rock, this may be a little bit heavy for your liking, but try it anyway, it isn't "standard nu-metal" at any rate. The verses are very melodic, and I had much fun learning it. Plus it throws in some changes in time signiture.

The Pot by Tool is awesome as well.

And Maxwell Murder being intermediate? I once tried to learn that, and I just can't get it down, and I think of myself as a high intermediate player.

A lot of Porcupine Tree's songs have interesting basslines.

"Rock" is such a vague term, so I'll suggest a couple of songs that will span a few "rock" based genres.

On the easier side of Intermediate:

Pearl Jam - Rats
Stone Temple Pilots - Plush
Doobie Brothers - Long Train Running
RATM - Bombtrack
Thin Lizzy - Dancing In The Moonlight
Deep Purple - Black Night
Robert Palmer - Addicted To Love
Peter Gabriel - Sledgehammer
Jimi Hendrix - Little Miss Lover

If you want something a little more challenging:

Steely Dan - Josie
Rush - The Trees
Led Zeppelin - Black Dog
RHCP - Apache Rose Peacock
Free - Mr Big
The Who - My Generation
Sugarloaf - Green Eyed Lady

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.

that kinda made me giggle.

And I gotta say, Maxwell Murders is one annoying bass solo. I can dig some of his basswork, but that just sounds like hitting random notes while tremelo picking to me. I've never been a fan of bass wankage.

As for the original question, check out some of Jaco's stuff when he was with Weather Report, namely the "Heavy Weather" album. It's pretty nice stuff to learn with once you hit an intermediate level or so.
