Coolest Bass Riff?
What do you think is the coolest bass riff, ever? and by whom?

walpurgis 2002-07-28 11:42

I don't know if it's my absolute favorite, but if you crank a distortion pedal onto a bass and play the main parts to Motorhead's Orgasmatron, it's just purely fucking sweet, even as simple as it is :D

Katham 2002-07-28 14:10

Mainly they are on Swervedriver's Raise album...

Adi Vines knew how to control those four stings... Too bad he don't play in a band anymore :(

Iron Maiden - Wrathchild
Iron Maiden - Phantom of the opera
Racer X - scarified (in a moment has an incredible bass solo)

sweet, ill try and find the orgasmatron song wally, and good news ive got a distortion pedal!

walpurgis 2002-08-07 12:44

Shouldn't be hard to find...Motorhead is awesome :)

Tattered 2002-08-08 13:50

The ''Orgasmatron'' that ive found hasnt got any bass in it:o

walpurgis 2002-08-08 13:54

You do know that Lemmy uses distortion right? Motorhead's version starts with him just playing it on bass...

Tattered 2002-08-08 14:02

Oh right..

shouldnt be hard to work out i guess..but yeah its quite a cool riff

they havent got any motorhead tabs on here which im dissapointed at
they have some at mxtabs but they only have ace of spades and play the game

walpurgis 2002-08-08 14:06

I don't know if they have the bass tabs, but you can just basically copy the guitar part, I think that's what Lemmy does.

Tattered 2002-08-08 14:13

Cheers mate, ill work on it!

walpurgis 2002-08-08 14:17

Sweetness, should be easy to learn, but it's fun as hell to play :)

Tattered 2002-08-08 14:53

Pulling Teeth
On the word of ''Fun to play'' i can play basically all of Anesthesia by metallica now..and the pedal makes it sound even more beastly, its just it gets harder when the drums enter, on the last part of the solo..but through pain and agony im gonna finish it no-matter what:D

walpurgis 2002-08-08 15:01

I envy you. Anasthesia is fuckin sweet. I'd be able to play the whole thing, I know I physically could do it, I just don't have the patience to sit and try the same parts over and over again then remember it all in order. A fatal musician's flaw :(

Tattered 2002-08-09 12:25

I know what you does get annoying..when u learn a new part of the song, and then you have to go through it again to remember that part included in the bits of the song u already knew..but yeah, u need a lot of patience..and skill;)

walpurgis 2002-08-09 13:45

I got the skill :p just dont' have the patience :D

Tattered 2002-08-09 13:47

ahhh but you need patience to have skill ;)

hehe :D :beer:


walpurgis 2002-08-09 13:51

Stay on topic, quit cluttering up my forums with your crap! :D

and what's up with the end of your last post??? :)

Tattered 2002-08-09 13:54

dude that was un-called for, i never said u werent skilled..i was just mentioniong stuff..yah?

Def 2002-08-13 10:23

yeah, I'm back from a 3 week holiday and my fingers hurt like hell after playing my bass for a couple of hours, DAMN! I gotta get used to it again.

ohyeah, about anesthesia, the "storm" kinda part before the drums is the shitty-est part... the beginning is easy and the second part is also pretty easy, when the drums come in its hard to hear on the cd if your playing it right, but I got there...

I used a boss odb3 bassoverdrive and a morley wah... I also used a compressor but you don't really need it for anesthesia.

ohyeah, it's good to be back on metaltabs after 3 weeks of holiday!!
