easy bass lines that sounds complex

Discussion in 'Tablature and Notation [BG]' started by retitled, Apr 12, 2004.


  1. Easy bass lines (in my opinion) :
    "Boris the spider" by The Who
    "Money" by Pink Floyd

    but it's possible it doesn't sound too hard...

    Soul To Squeeze, RHCP. It's very melodic and sound intricate, but technically not that hard.

    Not difficult sound but great fun to play is 'I will possess your heart' by Death Cab for Cutie. Fun bassline.

    most...not all... geezers stuff...once you get into the sabbath groove its all just fast blues runs on 7 and 9... still great to play though.

    flea is a great bass player btw... he can rock and funk and blues and jazz, he has changed his style radically over the years....if you dont rate him, listen to kareem on one hot minute...then tell me hes not one of the best.
     

  5. +1 to that

    Take On Me-Big Reel Fish


    Sounds very fast and difficult but is very easy


    I would say a lot of Ska sounds complex but is often easy.



    Ska p with the song El vals del obero




    This is very easy to learn but it sounds complex and long.

    Hysteria by Muse, everyone (who doesn't play bass) seems amazed if I play that

    it's not hard really you just need to be able to keep your fingers working

    Schism by Tool, its very original and impressive and Justin Chancellor is an excellent bassist. But it sounds very hard to do and its not, its very easy.

    www.tooltabs.net is the site for this
