  1. hi....
    i've got a question...
    through all the hundreds(maybe thousands) of songs you've learn and played... which one was/is the hardest???

    from all the song I play now, my hardest is probably seeman from rammstein, i can't play it perfectly yet... (forgive me... i've been playing for less than a month :( )

    That one song. Y'know, it's by that one guy...it's on that one album. It's the one that goes...well, it's hard to explain, but you know, where he plays realllllly fast and then does that solo.

    Yeah. That one.

    I don't see why everyone always gets so worked up about Tommy the cat...its just 3 notes and a lot of rhythmic games.

    that said, the hardest song I've attempted learning has got to be Chromatic fantasy...."me and my bass guitar" is pretty tough too.

    probably the hardest technically challengin song I CAN play is Classical Thump...though its not 100% perfect, its close enough for me.

    me too :(

    I hate that part where he does this thing that is so cool and stuff and then goes to do that weird thing with the effects to end the song

    it's unfair

    Dude! Totally!! I HATE that part!

    Then, there is the matter of that OTHER thing.. I can't even figure out what's happening there, let alone attempt to play it.

    The hardest song I've learned is that new song from Korn... I mean, I kept clicking when I should clack. You know in the clickkity clack clack part. Well I'd clickkity click clack. I could never get that first clack. Damn your brilliance Mr. Fieldy, damn it to hell. But now I'm gettin' all the bitches with my low end wizardry.

    Matt, if ever there was a valid reason for you to make another public apology on TalkBass, it would have to be for that last post.

    eeewww I remember learning that song...it took me forever weeks of practice, I can play it now.....poorly.
    thats a tough song. I found though that when I spent enough time with the fingerings it became a lot easier.
