    That is a cool little riff. I play it when warming up. :)

    I'd help you out, but I won't have my bass until tonight.

    If it's the one I'm thinking of, it's the verse from "Aeroplane" by RHCP. I think there's a tab in the archive.

    here go to bass, then RHCP and then aeroplane.
    in basstasters its really plain but the real thing its super hard to get ALL the variations on the verse, its like les claypool but less acid.

    If you just play the roots, isn't it also Dr. Dre's Let Me Ride (which was put out 3 years earlier)? If it is - wasn't that just a sample of a PFunk line? Flea was not being so original me thinks...

    Hmmm...will have to check that out. Flea does have a kickin' solo and adds a lot more to anything of Dre's usual bass lines though, so I'd still consider it pretty original. And yes, "Let me Ride" was originally a P-Funk line.

    Check it out, I think you'll be surprised. All Balzary does is add the octave pops (and granted some other neat little fills too). Don't have my bass handy but I believe it's G, A, A#, Db, C, D, D#,D. Sure Flea's solo is pretty cool, but he shouldn't get any credit for the line IMO.
