Anime-ted Bass Players group
I don't think this area has been explored yet. Who here is a bassist who enjoys playing tunes from japanese anime?
Me personally, I love to play lines from Bubblegum Crisis (the original), Angel Sanctuary, Cowboy Bebop, and various others.
Also included can be japanese pop/rock, or even american cartoons that have an anime flair.
Anyone else do this too??
bumping...I can't be the only one.
People have mentioned listening to the basslines in the anime. It's not a common topic that comes up. The biggest problem is figuring out the lines being played, which can be a bit difficult at times, especially to someone with an untrained ear. I've tried to do it myself, but have so far been unsuccessful. Which is sad because I have an ungodly anime collection.
MY GOD! i love anime basslines! i didnt think id find a thread for it though.
I like playing let me be with you from chobits. awesome.
mind if i get a number?
oo i got one for ya
the ending theme song for Ghost in the Shell: stand alone complex
it's called "lithium flower" and has a pretty sick bassline
I can play a couple songs off of that.
Oh, and the melody to Lilium from Elfen Lied
And this one cool freaky musical line from Evangelion
trying to learn songs from l'arc~en`ciel, their bassist Tetsu has some good basslines, they did the theme songs from: Full metal Alchemist, Samurai X, and Gundam 00...also try to listen on some songs by Judy and Mary they also have a song from Samurai X.
I don't play "anime bass tunes" really..... but I do listen to Japanese Rock mainly, and play it almost exclusively
Plastic Tree being my favourite band
let's make a club :bassist:
Count me in!
I've figured out the bass parts from many tunes in anime shows such as:
Ghost in the Shell (original movie)
Cowboy Bebop (most of the music for the series was written by Yoko Kanno and performed by her and a group of japanese studio musicians called "The Seatbelts"
oh, by the way, VideoGame music should be included into this topic!! [at least Japanese games........ like Rockman!!!!!!]
as for bass licks, there's a cool bit of mood music in trigun consisting of a repeating riff on a growly, stringy upright bass with a flute playing along that i can't help but play whenever i happen to pick up an upright.
I tend to wright music while watching anime more then actually playing along with the songs, but as I'm a huge anime fan I'll join for the hell of it.
Here is my list of favorites of anime music list.
FLCL [love The Pillows]
GITS SAC 1
Last Exile [OP only]
GITS SAC 2 [I hate the CT song though]
Requiem from the darkness
SoltyRei [OP only]
Okay, sorry for the delay. This thread was stagnant for a while and all of a sudden it just exploded with activity. Wikked!!
Here are the numbers for those of us who like that stuff:
1. kanonfodr (me)
4. Number 27
As more come in, I'll be sure to add them.
Sweet, I have a number.
I'll throw in!
Yoko Kanno is a flat out musical genius; a compositional/stylistic chameleon. And more of her songs than not have awesome bass lines. The Cowboy Bebop soundtrack would stand as a tremendous album(s) all on its own.
I'd be jazzed to form a Yoko Kanno cover band. Yes indeedy.
My wife and I have noticed that most of the anime shows we watch on Ye Olde Cartoon Network Adult Swim have great bass lines in the title music, often sharing the song as a nearly co-equal melody to the vocals.
4StringTheorist, you have just been awarded #10.
Was done by Manglobe, Ike Yoshihiro did the music for it.
