Schism by Tool...
Alot of people are throwing things around like Aeroplane and Classical Thump, saying they're easy for them. And they might be, but I think a majority are saying this don't realize they're not playing it right. I learned Aeroplane about a year after I started playing bass, even played it in a band and I thought I was awesome. People would come up to me and say how awesome I was and all. Except about 6 months ago I was playing my bass and Aeroplane came on and I realized that I was playing it completely wrong. I still don't have it down perfect.
Same with Classical Thump. I, and probably many other, have that beginning part down, it's pretty simple, but when it starts picking up? I'd be very impressed to hear some mp3s of you guys pulling that whole song off.
Or "Mellowship Slinky in B". It's just a broken descending B7/10 chord starting at 10.
Love that line.
DMV isnt that hard if you know how to tap which doesnt take very long....DMV sounds hard but once you play it its's you just have to practice it....it sounds incredible though..
Don't know if it's been said yet, but the Beverly Hills Cop theme
That's how most of Claypool's stuff is. Once you figure it out, it's easy. Love the man though.
the doors-waiting for the sun
I love that song...and yeah most doors base lines are arpeggios done very well (on keyboard bass) and work so well (although very simple). Just the intro and verse+solo lines to Light My Fire is all triads but sounds great and has movement.
I used to know that one. Definitely gets you some looks in a music store.
I thought Flea didn't know any theory?
Bill Wither's lovely day has a nice feel to it. Goes down well with yer nan too
I'm sure he discovered it by accident then.
A lot of Rancid's stuff's kinda easy. It's good for improving. I suggest Journey to the End of the East Bay. I learned that with about 3/4 year playing bass. An even better suggestion is any Zeppelin stuff. John Paul Jones is good but if you work at it, you'll eventually get it.
Pyscho Killer and Take me to the River by Talking heads
lol, I'm not sure if you knew, but Flea's actually a musical genious. He played trumpet before bass. Really well, may I add.
Excellent choices. These songs sound so cool because the lines are uncluttered..instead of machine-gun 64th notes or sick slapping, just a good groove played with lots of feel.
BuuuuuUUuuUuUut, in his "instructional" video he tells River Phoneix he doesn't know a damn thing about theroy.
