An Oddball Question...

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by HG1180, May 5, 2020.

  1. So, about 3 weeks ago i had a very odd dream in which i was the bass player for Green Day, what makes this odd is that i do not care at all for Green Day’s music. However, in the dream i was playing this bassline over and over again and its a really fun bassline to play (irl), and im sitting here playing it today and i think to myself, “wait a minute is this a Green Day bassline?”

    I dont even know to begin looking in their catalogue of albums to find something like this. From what i remember, it vaguely reminds me of their song “Holiday”

    Anyway heres the bassline. Sorry for the terrible video quality i did as best i could with my phone:thumbsup:

    Yep, close to "Longview" but not quite the same. But it's a fun line to play!
