Malignant Narcissism by Rush has a few small ones at the end, but the whole song sounds pretty cool on bass

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

The beginning of "Only Ash Remains" by Necrophagist. Also check out the short, relatively simple tapping solo in "Fermented Offal Discharge."

Be sure to rape the blue note (augmented 4th). Rape it hard and exploit it like the skank it is.

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

Continuum by Jaco Pastorius.

I'll second that. Easy up to the fast runs, then it takes some practice. if you can nail it though, its a knockout.

There used to be a guy on Youtube called GuyCee who had the best Jaco interpretations on there. He played Continuum with such soul, man. Its one thing being able to play Jaco, but quite another to really play it..

Good luck.
"Sting of the Bumblebee" by Manowar

the bass solo in "1,000 days in Sodom" by Venom.

The bass solo intro to "Death is certain, Life is not" by Dark Angel.

Also, "Lonesome Crow", Scorpions first album. It's pretty much a 40 minute bass solo...Yeah, the bass work makes Jaco sound like Pete Wentz. Get ASAP if you are interested in bass.

The list could go on but check those out first.

TS, trust me just go on Amazon and order 'Lonesome Crow" for a measley $10. It's got more bass riffs then Oprah's got Snickers bars. It's the best bass album ever made. Rush, Jaco, RHCP, Wooten.....this i'll take 'em all, lay 'em flat and stab them in the chest.

here, get it now....

Changed my bass playing life forever.

The soloish bit of Tom Sawyer by Rush that follows the synth is kinda fun. Repetitive as hell, but I like playing it.
Pretty much every song on Fortress by Protest The Hero has some awesome bass spots.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.
