    Power - semi difficult, but it flows so well that it sounds easy.
    Come On Come Over

    I don't mean to slam you or anything, but I have to respectfully disagree about "Come on, Come Over".

    The main riff is pretty easy, but when it breaks down, it gets rather difficult.

    I was speaking about the breakdown :D . The funk riff is very easy.

    Willy Wonka was thinking of the other post that he didn't even start! What was Willy thinking?

    Whether or not it is possible for an oompa loompa to play a long scale bass? :D

    "I don't like the looks of it, Oompa Duumpa Duppidty Doo"

    Ever seen the family guy spoof of Willy Wonka?, where Willy is a brewer and there is no handicapped access to his factory and Joe can't come in.

    The song the oompa loompas sing in that episode is hilarious, though I think they are called chumba wumbas in the show. :D

    Most Aston Barrett (Bob Marley) lines are very difficult but sound very easy. It's where he places the notes that makes it difficult. Amazing player.

    Agreed. Aston's lines are deceptively simple and absolutely brilliant.


    Same with Sting and Doug Pinnick.
