lol.... mmm how bout we stick with "owner of a lonely heart"
my thoughts exactly.
HIM's version of Wicked Game is pretty wicked easy... And booooooring....
yea, Tom Petty "Last Dance with Mary Jane" def. plus "Running down A Dream"
Bill Wyman of the Stones was a master at super simple parts that are actually fun to play. tunes like Satisfaction, Honky Tonk Woman, Heartbreaker
also a bunch of Lynard Skynard, AC/DC tunes, Neil Young's (or CSNY?) "Can't You See", and Zep "Rock N Roll"
"When Doves Cry" - Prince
portrait of tracy
Big +1 to that!!
Terrible bassline, which is surprising because Gene Simmons basslines are usually pretty rhythmic and catchy.
Maybe his movie career prevented it.
Every breath you take
The head melody to So What
All are great tunes, but incredibly easy to play!
alice in chains songs are easy but sound realy good. them bones, rooster, would?, and many others are easy on the fingers but very diverse to the mind
I can think of a couple:
Def Leppard- Pour Some Sugar On Me (you need the first two frets of the E and A string)
Stone Roses- She Bangs The Drums (G-G-E-Fsharp-Fsharp....)
Queen-Another One Bites The Dust (I hate this bassline).
smells like teen spirit
And I bet your band plays it because "here is a song for the bass player"
Anything by The Ramones. I usually turn my brain off... LOL!!!
Yep, 80's Yes is definitely easier. I was in a Yes tribute band seven or eight years ago. We played the entire Close to the Edge album, plus some Fragile stuff, plus some stuff from The Yes Album, and of course, the obligatory Owner.
For a bass player looking for simple stuff, Owner is a good one.
One of the easiest is Static X, Dirthouse.
One note, all day, on the 8ths.
I was giving my bass instructor crap, told him I had a challenging song, and gave him this tab I printed out. He started laughing and now uses it when his other students complain about things being too hard. "Well, you can work on Dirthouse"
I'm glad those students don't know me personally, as I'm sure, they already don't like me
I remember playing Chameleon with a band years ago and ageing very rapidly while playing it.
When Doves Cry.
no bassline at all!
Plus, aside from the three-note main riff, it really isn't all that easy and requires funky and precise playing.
Myself, I'd like to nominate "Walking on Sunshine" by Katrina and the Waves, three notes, repeated ad nauseum, occasionally two notes repeated at nauseum when the chorus decides to show up.
The Bucket by Kings of Leon.
