Looking for a challenging song.

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by Guss, Mar 12, 2003.

  1. I've got a lesson tommorow, and I'm looking for a moderatly challenging bass line, or song, whatever. Don't worry about musical preferance. As long as it's a cool song I'll appreciate it. :)

    Kiss by Prince.

    And if that's too easy, give Chromatic Fantasy a whirl.
  7. "Echidna's Arf (OF You)" from the record "Roxy & Elsewhere" by Frank Zappa.
    "What's New In Baltimore?" from the record "Does Humor Belong In Music?" also by Frank Zappa
  8. How about what this guy's playing > :bassist:

    looks pretty tough to me!

    He also did a duet piece that's tough :bassist: :bassist:

    Oh, and after you've got Chromatic Fantasy licked, try Rachmaninov's 2nd Piano Concerto.

    The piano part that is, on bass.

    Hey...I'm a newbie on TalkBass...so be gentle with me.

    Try Sound Chaser by Yes. Then, send me the sheet music :)

    I like this thread...many times I find myself thinking "I need something that is impossibly difficult that I can learn"

    I'n working on chromatic fantasy...I've got about 1/2 of it so far...I guess:( :meh:
  13. I'd love to see ANYBODY give Chromatic Fantasy 'a whirl'
