You all are lame!

I did not see the mid part of "Slit Your Guts" - Cryptopsy!

Go and listen to that song, and tell me what you think of the little Bass line, and the follow ups.

Need plectrum speed for this!

Lars frederiksen and the bastards - If the kids are united

if you can play this song using your fingers, you rule!!!!!!!

Amazing punk song, very hard bass intro and solo, i have been picking with my fingers for about 6 months flat, and havent used a pick, but this song is so cool, i wanna pick up the plectrum again to learn this. As the bassist uses a plec, to get the cool clinky sound, can anyone tip me on how to get some plectrum speed?

Like exercises, and stuff..cheers
(no masturbation tips, hehe)


Cheers

The first thing is, to get a good bass plec. Years ago there were real bass-plecs, but nowadays it's hard to get them.
So take a thick one.

technique: Just turn your wrist and not your whole arm. I f you do it this way it is easy to gain speed.

The plecs were quite huge and were covered with filth (?).
Couldn't find any pics of it. I hope you know what i mean.

You don't need to misuse your strings. Just hardly touching them is enough on an e-bass.

At the end of Savatage's 24 Hours A Day there's a very very cool riff...sounds divine....I love it...the only problem is my fretting hand gets really tired after 1 minute of continous playing of this riff

Crass' I Know There's Love uses it's bass riffs really groovy, and cool.

It isn't that hard to play, but it has recognizable technical parts.

Yes, ofcourse but that's what using a plectrum is all about

I use the ibanez triangles, huge ass triangle plectrums and pretty thick one's, I posted a pic of them once

No problem, and it is a damn good song, I'm just not sure how good of a bassline it has, per se. I don't remember a lot of Metallica's bass lines standing out too much, aside from Orion and a couple others.

The intro has a technical feel to it, providing the oppurtunity to show the higher notes, the follow up has a good eighth note steady rythm, and the verse and chorus riffs leave room for improvisation. One of my favorite songs to play. Cliff is bass god!

Yeah, it's a nice song but I don't think the bass is that special, I started playing a lot of pantera shit lately, and they actually have killer bass lines (check 5 minutes alone! etc...) Orion has some cool bass stuff, but it's one of the only songs where the bass stands out, which sucks, after cliff died the bass parts got less cool if you ask me, I did never like jason that much.
