Hmmm I just watched the live video for it (Fermented Offal Discharge) on http://metalmedia.proboards33.com/
You can't hear the bass very well, sometimes I couldn't hear it at all. That tapping part sounds wicked.
Does he do sweeps for these arpeggios? Are they the same thing as the guitar?
A cool song despite the poor recording quality because it is live.

Oh, and I don't have powertab on this computer, but I think I know why some people can't find the bass in powertab files. The bass clef is on a separate page from the treble clef, so if you want to see it, you need to press F3. That's just my guess why some people can't find the bass while other people are insisting that it should be there. If you can hear the bass when you press play, then there it is tabbed into the file.

I wouldn't want to try to learn that song yet, even if I cheated and did the easier thing for me: using fingers.


Edit: Fixed link.

i dissagree with this entire statement

im just saying the only time the bass shines through is when stefan plays arpegios or melodies, he doesnt write BASS lines, he copies what the guitar is doing, not that that is a bad thing its just not what im about when i play bass!

You seen the official tabs for some of their songs? The bass certainly ain't copying the guitar.

its tough to keep track of what the bass is doing in all the madness, but mr. fimmers does drop some solid lines. he makes excellent use of counterpoint and his bag of tricks ( rakes, harmonics, 2 handed taps, etc.) always keeps things interesting. cant wait to hear the new shit when it finally comes out.

not that martin mendez isnt a phenominal player, but theres very few lines in the new album that walk off of the roots of the chords at all.

you do all realise that the bass was already written on Onset Of Putrefaction for him before he joined the band right?

he doenst during melodies but he does during verse lines , just let me have my opinion. All i mean to say is i like sean malone or roger patterson a whole lot more than stefan mainly because they use the bass in more of a bass context. like i already stefan is good just not my style
