Hammer Smashed Face?
 
Hey, this is going to make me sound like a total n00b but whatever...

I know all of Hammer Smashed Face except that fucking bass solo. It's hard to hear what he's doing on the original because he has such a damn "clunky" tone, and he's ripping the hell out of the strings. It doesnt sound fast but it is, like a blur of arpeggiated notes :mad: and it's hard to find an accurate transcription of this too, I have been through tab after tab and NONE of them are correct, they all have something missing that I can't put my finger on (no pun intended) so does anyone here know it note for note and/or have any advice? know where I can find an accurate tab of this? I'd really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

(By the way : This isnt a tab request, I'm just trying to figure this part out and I'm fucked over on it)

:beer: Cheers! :beer:

Didn't Webster use a 4-string Fender tuned to Eb back in those days?
The recording does have an annoying 'rubber band' quality to it...

Yeah sounds like he's just playing through a jazz pickup with the low mid's cranked to fuck on his amp, sounds kinda shitty.....but I love the tone on Live Cannibalism. A little bit of distortion, enough bass to shake the floor and just enough mid range to cut through the mix.....orgasmic tone :eek: ;) gotta love Ampeg! :beer:

blitz906 2006-01-11 20:18

and....is it just me? or does it sound like he's playing something different on the Live Cannibalism version :confused: he's playing it faster, I know that for sure...I like the live version better, thats the one I'd like to play instead.

Robbie Filth is right, that is how the bass solo is played, took me awhile tab that part correctly.

He is playing the same thing. Just a different tone.

That sounds right, but it seems almost to easy for all the hype Webster gets.

Thats what I was thinking when I was looking at all the tabs for it....but you don't always have to play complicated stuff to be a good bass player, he plays enough complicated shit as it is :p

Thanks again man :beer:

Well, CC didn`t really get that technical until Barnes left.

Robbie Filth 2006-01-13 10:22

Yeah i mean when you watch the dvd of the wretched spawn he does some excellent solos on that thing.

If you havn't seen it and are a big webster fan check it out.

blitz906 2006-01-15 17:48

Yeah that tab seems right, but somehow the Live Cannibalism version sounds different, almost like he's playing it an octave higher, and it looks like it on the video.....anyone else notice a difference :confused:

i dunno dude i just watched monolith of death and he's playing in the middle of the neck

genocide circus 2006-01-23 13:35

Was he using the 5-string bass? Could be playing the same thing but in the 5th position using the B string.

sixsicsix 2006-01-24 20:25

possibly but thats alot of movement and he diddnt look to be moving from 5th at all

The previously posted riff has notes on the 1st fret of the b string

blitz906 2006-01-26 10:15

Yeah he always plays it in the middle of the neck, and he is using his B string playing from the 5'th.....just like on Live Cannibalism....I was reading the Cannibal Corpse forums on the official website and he says he plays the solo exactly the same every time he plays live....and he did it exactly the same on the album too....same fingering positions and everything. So it's not that confusing.



But whats up with this??? this tab is 5 strings....and the open note is the low B....the solo sounds nothing like that lol...I think whoever tabbed that meant to have the open notes on the E string.

Wouldnt this be the correct way if you were using a 4-string tuned to Eb ???


G -------------------

E ---0-------1---0---X4

Anyways I was just verifying that....I pretty much have the solo now...thanks to all that helped :)

:beer: Cheers :beer:

blitz906 2007-01-14 02:01

Ok yeah...this is what I mean, check these 2 videos out and listen to the bass solos...

and...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2CkCxnbleQ

Don't the bass solo's sound like they are being played different to the version on the album? or do I need to clean out my ears :confused:

4d5e6f 2007-01-14 02:24

Same exact thing, just different tone.

blitz906 2007-01-15 03:56

I spose people are right, I probably do have hearing damage lol...either that or I'm tone deaf...which I doubt. I really should get my hearing checked... :(
