I searched and only found this type of thread on the electric guitar forum, so let's go for it on the bass forum.

For me it would be:
1. Yyz - Rush
2. Anesthesia: Pulling Teeth - Metallica
3. Either Phantom of the Opera or Killers, both by Iron Maiden, not sure which is harder.

I can also play the keyboard solo to Because It's Midnite by Limozeen, and I can do stuff like this

I'm also working on Ytse Jam by Dream Theater (almost 100% down), and will be learning the keyboard solo to Highway Star by Deep Purple once I get a Micro POG and will be able to hit the higher notes.

I only actually learn other peoples bassline's when I have to. But I guess I know a couple.

Oscar Pettiford's bassline to Duke Ellington's "C Jam Blues"

I can also play the head to Charlie Parkers Billie's Bounce which is much harder.

But really you are way better off listing to the bassist who wrote those basslines and applying the knowledge you gain to your own original basslines. It will make you a way better bass player in the end.

Correct. A correction is an education not a rebuke.

Let see...

Come On, Come over--Jaco
Bernadette -- Four tops (but not quite up to speed...getting there)
Jordu -- Duke Jordon (playing a mix of the head and bass chords)

There's probably more but I just can't think of anything beyond those three at the moment.

Why is everyone saying YYZ? It's a **** song. Like srsly

Anyways... Hardest songs
Yesterday Don't Mean **** - Pantera
Scarified - Racer X (lol I can only play it when I warm up for like an hour. but even then those damn solos are sketchy)
Spheres Of Madness - Decapitated

(Currently working on School Days by Stanley Clarke and Cruise Misile by Jerry Peek... Songs are ****ing bitches... That solo in school days and those scales in Cruise Misile. God damn... I need to get my chops up)

Sorry, but because you listen to Tool doesn't mean you're intelligent.

respect to yyz. I suppose my proudest achievement is being able to play the first 30 seconds of the guitar solo from stairway to heaven on bass (just about), but I prefer to improvise than play other peoples stuff mostly.

I rarely learn songs the whole way through. I try to pick out riffs by ear and just play them, but most of the time I'm composing my own songs and basslines and improving my own bass playing.

1. My Name is Mud- Primus

2. YYZ- Rush

3. Laquer Head- Primus


Yah, I like Primus. They suck so much.

Yeah. Primus sucks

And I've tried learning Laquer head but I don't get it... do you slap the A with your thumb and then pop the Bb and A(higher one)?? And do you double thumb it? and how do you slap and pop at the same time? or is that not nessicary?

Improvisation song. It's an absolute beast to get the timing and notes just right on. :P

But I don't tend to learn songs that are particularly technically difficult...not my style of music, really.

How I do it, is I do the percussive thing he does in My name is mud with my fretting hand, and I slap the A and pop the A above it with the fret-hand action inbetween. You're basically alternating which hand does the percussive action, and alternating the notes on the plucking hand. Sorry, I have a tendency to state the obvious, lol.
