It is a slap bass line. It comes on the start and when they switch scenes and at the end.
The clock strikes midnight
When tomorrow and today collide
The moon is at its highest
And the twilight seems fitting
For in these moments
The light at the end of the world
Shines like a thousand suns....

Yes ive been asked to play it, i just played some little slap riff and they were satisfied. But did you know it was actually played on a keyboard.

Lmfao, this is the best thread ever, aside from the fact that it involves a girl being harpooned through a tent.

Never knew he'd take it to heart like that.

I've got an even better one; a friend of a friend picked up my fretless, strung with Rotosound Swing Bass, and started slapping like a madman. The sound of the stainless steel strings hitting the bare wood is a sound I never want to hear again. I bet the sound of my fist going through his head is something he never wants to hear again.

Wow, I learn something new every day. Now that you said that, I remember that on my friend's electric piano/keyboard I can switch to a slap bass function, and I can get almost the exact same sound out of it.
