    I like Tom Barney's line in "Gaslighting Abbie" on the "Two Against Nature" album by Steely Dan. How about that ... three prepositional phrases in a row. I give myself a C-.

    heres some stuff i learned when i first got my bass. you didnt say if you were a beginner or not so ill assume beginner.

    bro hymn tribute (pennywise)

    gone away (the offspring)

    king nothing (metallica)

    the slow bass solo to orion (metallica that was the song that made everyone think i was awsome when i sucked)

    my friend of misery (metallica)

    a little tiny bit of anesthesia (metallica but i want very good at it)

    and i learned a little of crazy fun stuff like la bamba, super mario bros theme, inspector gadget theme, simpsons theme and all that kinda stuff.
     
  5. Hmmm I like:
    chick magnet-mxpx
    bro hymn as stated above.
    Sunshine of love-cream
    smells like teen spirit-nirvana
    longview-greenday


    and many more, but those seem like good examples
