I have an opportunity to jump into a party band, and was given a couple of tapes to learn. Most of the songs are songs that I vehemently hated back in the days of Disco/Rock. I can't tell you how much I'm loving this stuff now - it's opening up a whole new world of bass playing for me. YMCA - playing ocataves with my thumb and 2 other fingers. Freak Out - great funk exercises (especially the break part and those little fills going into each verse) Ease on Down the Road - amazing "flea like" fills in the choruses. Last Dance - always loved the bass on that. KC and the Snshine Band, Songs from Grease "You're the One That I Want" ..... I am LOVING this stuff. I think I'm also really getting off on the fact that I can play it all now also. A couple of years ago this stuff I think just intimidated me. Just wanted to rant.
