I've put a bet on I can learn a song on bass.....BAD idea!

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Fassa Albrecht, Feb 23, 2008.

  1. OK I decided to put on a bet with someone that I can learn to play The Perfect Kiss by New Order all the way through from memory.

    Stupid idea.....really stupid idea but I've got £10 riding on it.
  2. that's like $20 in the states :D

    better start selling blood.
  3. I hope the person put a timeline on this bet, otherwise the person who made that bet with you needs some help in the cranial cavity! ;)

    Really, the point of bothering to learn to play instruments is to play a song start to finish, from memory. Right?

    New Order? So it's going to be easy then? Best stop complaining and take this £10.
  5. The song is 8 minutes long and has some pretty AWESOME bass playing.

    I was actually listening to that song for most of Friday, I think I'd better put it on again in a minute, Hooky's playing on it is AWESOME :)

    Good luck with your bet, post a recording if you manage to do it ;)

    Edit: While we're on the topic, here's the 9:28 performance music video New Order released with this song:

    They actually made it longer than the CD edit! 0_o

    All of the audio on the video is actually from the performance too! Amazing band :)

    Who's the girl? She's cute.
  7. Married to the drummer ;P

    Yeah, she had that really, really cute "normal" looking girl look about her. And the synths on New Order are awesome -- and she plays a lot of them! :)
  8. Do it the way you learn other songs. . . . break it down to parts. . . learn the patterns and put the parts together. You didn't mention how long you have, but if you have time to run through it for a few days you should develop that 'muscle memory'.
    Besides, if you can't get it you may have time to earn that £10 before you have to pay off. But you should be able to learn this.
