Metallica - Anesthasia (Pulling Teeth)

have fun:cool:

I play lots of Raised Fist and Shockwave stuff now, pretty sweet, raised fist can get complicated.

if you just want some nice basslines, check out Level 42

Tattered 2002-12-06 13:05

Check out some of rancids stuff, and try chili peppers - Aeroplane thats rull of bass riffs with a cool solo, or if your looking for a melodic solo try Metallica's - Anesthesia

Oh and check out morningwillcome, they rule!!

(ask def-fx for mp3's :) :D :) :D )

i couldnt find tabs for those songs, other than aneasthesia, which i learnt in about feb :(

Ive looked at rancids stuff before, im no punk fan and the technical bits seem a bit naff compared to other stuff outhere(soundwise)

black sabbath - master of insanity from the dehumanizer album

go to guitar tabs, then on the side, dehumanizer, then master of insanity. the first part is the same for bass, and since they dont have that particular bass tab, the guitar'll do.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Aeroplane
Heres the tab for aeroplane, enjoy it, feel the funk!

Try billy seehan

I don't think there's tabs on the net but from what I've read you're assuming to be a
awesome player so transcribing it will be no problem

Def 2002-12-15 12:06

lessons in love

bit more tricky, there is a dog:

great bass songs there, but too much punk between it for me :D

lol, another funny song for bass and quite tricky!

deep purple - smoke on the fucking water!

Tattered 2003-02-09 11:39

lol are you being sarcastic or is there actually a phat bass riff in there that i havent recognised. lol

Rancid - axiom! phat bass solo on that defs had a shot at it.

Def 2003-02-09 17:09

No, I'm beeing serious, the verse riff is pretty neat, haha it sounds less complicated then it actually is!

anways there's more cool deep purple tunes like Black Night :P

it's not that it's really complicated but it's just weird to play, try it :)
