I searched and found nothing useful.

I was messing around earlier with it and got something that reminded me a little of 2 minutes to midnight by iron maiden, but now that fooling around with it has gotten me excited, I want to know some basic songs to practice my two hand tapping on. Suggestions?

people who think that the tuning peg things have to be straight. I went to the bathroom once, I come back, and my friend detunified my guitar, and then asked why it sounded weird. ARGG!!!

You do mean for bass, right?


Because I'm pretty sure these other guys don't know that...


yeaaah. I'm getting that vibe

you'd think, what with it being in the Bass Forum and all, they'd realise

bless their little cotton socks...

and TS, To defy the laws of tradition has a really easy two handed tap part in the little bridgey sections

Stu Hamm has a lot of songs that have some easier 2 hand tapping sections.
'Country Music (Night in Hell)' is a good one.
'Surely the Best' is a little harder (2 hand-tapping wise)

Wait, that's tapping? So THAT'S why it sounds so weird!

I wouldn't call that easy. The left hand part is simple enough, but that right hand... if you've watched Hallucinogenetics, none of the tabs have it right, and I can't do it for the life of me.

But, Mr. Knowitall with a little practice would be a good one.

I pretty much do it the way he does on the video for the radio ( ) show he did to promte Frizzle Fry, it's on the Animals.... DVD

not got Hallucinogenetics, is it good? it is literrally the only Primus on disk form I'm missing

Stu Hamm's take on "Linus and Lucy" (aka the 'Charlie Brown Theme) is pretty easy; it just takes a bit of practice. There's even a YouTube vid out there of Hamm showing you how to play if if I remember right.
#12
Easiest one I've found is Stu Hamm's Country Song and The Star-Spangled Banner. The Country one requires some moderately decent chops when it comes to slap, it's not hard no, but if you suck at slapping then it may take a little bit more work. The Star-Spangled Banner however is relatively simple and sounds beautiful
#13
Yeah, that country song is neat and fairly easy. It also segues into one of Wooten's lessons on tap that you can find on Youtube.

The thing with To Defy... it that he's taping the E and A in seemingly random patterns that make that absurd sound. I can't do it consistently enough, I guess... more practice!

Your first mistake was getting a Chinese lady to cut your hair.

Your second mistake was getting someone who doesn't speak English to cut your hair.

Your third mistake was listening to your dicklock parents.

omg rly whoa

But yeah, that's a good one. DMV is good too, though I'm not sure how easy it is. I can play the main riff pretty easily, but some parts are really tricky.

I tried it out. I don't have 24 frets but someone posted a 4 string version of the tab on here, i think it's version 4 of the bass tabs. I didn't do too well but that's one I'll keep working on. I'll take some of these other suggestions too, thanks a lot guys!

it's just practice, and a 5 string

lol, I can't do it, but I don't own a 5-er, but my mate sat and learnt it in a couple of hours, like all of it....so yeah, if you have a 5 stringer TS, give it a whirl
