i just got into chords recently and i wanna know which metal/hardrock bassits uses them.
Billy sheehan does for sure, but I guess in most bands there's just not enough room in the band sound for that - you can hardly even hear the bass with most bands.
:cough METALLICA cough cough:
Well, if you CAN hear it, Jason Newstead uses a few on ReLoad, but its nothing special.
Ryknow of Mudvayne and Jason Newsted, ex-Metallica. This is to name a few...of the few....
Pete Steele, Type O Negative.
Mostly root/fifth power chord type stuff, but I believe Steele does thirds and such on occasion.
chords rule dood
check out um cliff.. from metallica..
check out iron maiden tooo dood..
steve harris does a little bitty bass solo on the song "iron maidne" and its got chords..its major fast too.. and not too hard...
learn pulling teeth its got some chords in it
i've seen type o live several times and peter steele plays all sorts of weird chords. and then you ask him about it after the show and he just looks at you like your an idiot. i don't know why, but he _acts_ like he hates commenting on anything about his playing. strange guy, but his chops are evident. he actually can play....and yeah, ryknow from mudvayne---another awesome bassist. who is also sort of an enigma. let's not forget john entwistle.
i am normally not into mudvayne and that whole genre.... but i went to the marry mayhem tour, and mudvayne opened.
ryknow is about one of the quirkiest guys out there. he'll go from slamming his fists on his neck to playing chords... and the weirdest part- it sounds good.
this guy is someone to watch. i think the whole band has talent, but i think they need to mellow out a bit. get the guitar up higher so the bass can be heard. IMO
John Myung uses a decent amount of chording (both tapped and strummed) in Dream Theater's work.
I'm not sure how "hard" these are as "rock" groups in your opinions, but THe guy from Tool and Timmy C of rage against the machine, have been known, on occassion to dable in 5ths, 3rds etc
Rob Grange was known to do some chording in the tail end of The Amboy Dukes, before Ted Nugent put his name up front.
I love ToN, but I can never heard anything that Peter's playing. It all sounds buried so deeply under the guitars. Maybe his playing was more evident back in his Carnivore days?
The little groove he does in "Everything Dies" is great though.
They are very hard to hear, but Alex Webster of Cannibal Corpse throws in a few chords on occasion - root-b3 and root-b5 type of thing.
what neptoon said about how Steele reacted to him asking about his playing.from what i heard and the one time i talked to him he hates stupid ? like he all so hates beeing asked the same thing over and over .if you like make your self seem smart when talking to him and not act liek a fan asking the same dumbh ? hes a really nice guy
Paul D'Amour and Justin Chancellor of Tool.
