  1. Hey does anyone know some songs that I can play with just my bass, no guitar, no drums and sing to for recording in my bedroom, just low quality stuff.

    I'm of intermediate skill level.... so nothing like flea :) fairly simple stuff.

    rock, pop, punk.... along those lines...

    Spacegrass - Clutch
    Hey man nice shot - Filter
    Walking on the Moon - Police

    London Calling - Clash

    All are easy, but well-constructed lines that are fairly easy to play and sing lead to.

    It's funny you should say Flea because thing first thing that comes to mind. How about "Pea" off of One Hot Minute.



    OOOH, great one, how about "Stand by Me" by Ben King. (That's who does it, right?)
     
  6. ...and if you're getting bored with "Stand By Me" you can switch to singing the verse of The Police's "Every Breath You Take" - same chords! :)

    U2's "With Or Without You" is quite easy, too!
     
  7. lol, cool, cool
     
  8. 'I Would' from Jane's Addiction is a cool song and has nothing but bass and vocals. It's only two chords too.
     
  9. Good choice! And their "Jane Says" or "Summertime Rolls"!:)
