    I dig it too, mmm 6/4. :D

    A few of my faves:
    Morphine - French Fries with Pepper

    Marcus Miller - Power
    Clutch - Spacegrass
    Rush - Leave that Thing Alone
    Fishbone - When Problems Arise
    Primus - Del Davis' Tree Farm
  10. Well... this one kinda matches this:
    Are You In? - Incubus

    ... but thats kinda like a bass / drum intro, but i just love that line.

    i second the nib, so what, whipping post, and jerry was a race car diver - all great

    infectious grooves' cover of "immigrant song"
    stick - "feul"
    a. morrisette - "you oughta know"
    rush - "cygnus x1"
    rollins - "liar"
    breeders - "cannonball"

    ok so some are bass and drums and some even have vocals but all those make the hairs on the back of my neck stick up (ok they did until i started shaving them with the rest of the hair on my head) ;)

    A third vote for Bassically (that's what the other two meant when they said NIB ;))

    Whipping post is fun to play, but boy did that intro hurt my fingers the first few times (I'm not sure why either - something about that riff...)
    Intro to crash course is cool - Whether or not I can play that up to tempo is always a good indicator of if I am warmed up or not!

    I'd always thought the intro to whipping post was in 7/4 and counted:
    1 2-y & a 3 4-y & a 1 2-y & a 3 &
