I miss that Swedish sense of humor.
Brown Eyed Girl (Van Morrison) - This could get you some nookie at some point.
Time Is Tight (Booker T and The MGs) - Fun song that might get you a spot in that Blues Brothers cover band.
Tom Sawyer (Rush)- It is one of those songs that a band expects you to know... even if you never play it.
How Many More Times (Led Zeppelin) - Easy and fun to play LOUD!
Dragon Attack (Queen) - One of John Deacons best, and most underated, bass lines.
Orion (Metallica) - Great melodic bass line that I learned as newbie on the bass... I still play it today as a warm up.
The Trooper (Iron Maiden) - Good way to practice pumping out those Steve Harris triplets.
Cut The Cake (Average White Band) - Get Funky.
Barney Miller Theme (no idea who) - Someone is going to ask. You might as well know it.
Any AC/DC song - Everybody knows at least one.
The Seeker (The Who) - Thunderfingers held this band together. It was hard to pick just one Who song.
Sympathy for the Devil (The Rolling Stones) - You have to be able to sing the "woo woo" part too. Don't be afraid to vamp the line a little- it's a good time.
